THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR! You do not get paid for chores because it's an expected part of being a family. Allowance is teaching children how to manage money. I have started this with the kids, the chore list doesn't get money but the commission chart does! There are different chores on each. AND she incorporates tithing and savings! Brilliant!
Allowance - Money is not earned by doing chores. Chores are part of being a family and are expected to be done. Allowance is used to teach financial responsibility. I like this idea, but I like having additional jobs that can be done for money too. Chores should be expected, but not totally unrewarded. People do get paid for working. Good life lessons.
