Do everything without whining, complaining or arguing. Every one has their own jar. Start off the week with a set amount of quarters in each jar. If they are caught whining or complaining, they lose a quarter. At the end of the week, they get the money that's left or you could put it towards an activity.

reward system... kind of like my token rules!

Uh-oh jar-what a great idea to discipline the kiddos. Really think it would cut down on the whining......."uh oh you need to pick another one".....

when they argue.. LOL GREAT IDEA! FUNNY.

FINALLY! 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. Thank you, Pinterest. Now I have a place to start.

After 15 years of failed allowance systems and chore charts that were way too much work, I found an easy system that works for us.

What a great idea

Looking for ways to help your children learn to serve others? This idea has really blessed us and has completely changed the way my children interact with each other!

Another pinner said: Six Ways to Keep the "Good" in Your Boy: Guiding Your Son from His Tweens to His Teens by Dannah Gresh.

Now THIS is smart. The site helps guide parents and educators on what age groups should know at their age. I'm going to check this out!

This girl had the BEST IDEA!!! She said, "My son is in preschool and the adorable art work is pouring in. I know he isn't going to want all these old papers when he is older so I am taking a picture of everything, keeping my very favorites to display at holidays or in a scrapbook and everything else just has to go. I found this amazing idea for displaying his artwork using the photos I have taken.
