I Will Never Pay My Kids For Doing Their Chores

In Fact, My Kids Don’t Get Any “Reward” For Completing Their Chores

In my household, I give each of my three kids assigned chores that are respectively age-appropriate: for example, my eldest is tasked with sweeping and dusting while my youngest sets the table for dinner every evening.

They are expected to complete their chores as needed—for example, dishwashing has to be done in a timely manner, but vacuuming can be done at any point in the week. I do not reward them for getting things done.
