Megan does not pay an allowance to the girls, but over the last few weeks we have noticed that the oldest, Skyler, has not wanted to complete any chores around the house. After finding out that the credit card that Megan uses has a “Family Account” option that sends a credit card in the family members name, and you transfer money to that card so that it isn’t connected to the main account. Megan created a Chore List Allowance worksheet called “Work For Hire.”
Skyler will have to earn her money from now own to be able to spend it how she wishes. She is able to spend it as soon as she has the money transferred, which is on a Tuesday in our household, or save it to be able spend it on something larger. We have notice other parents giving their children other incentives other than monetary gains. Things like screen time, but for Skyler we honestly believe that she will start working around the house without complaining as much if she is actually paid.
