|Rose sorting laundry.|
I suppose I should have a philosophy about chores. I've been on some of the big-family websites and there is almost a theology to how chores ought to operate. Well. In some ways, there really is, as one person shouldn't always be the "taker" and so on. But am I the only one who is too lazy to write up the chart and tally work hours and so forth?
I also suppose I oughtta do the allowance thing... but I don't. I do pay a little for vacuuming and other chores which rightfully ought to be mine, but I can no longer do. I also pay for yardwork.
One thing I do shell out for? Is little kids doing their schoolwork each week. Woodjie gets about seven Pokemon cards each week and ohh... does he look forward to Friday afternoons! He has an entire plastic ice cream bucket full of his earnings that he carries about with him to sort through and look at during his free time.
How about your family? Do you give rewards for chores or for other great jobs?
