Ask The Readers: Should Kids Get Paid For Doing Chores?
Simple chores like doing dishes and taking out the trash can teach kids invaluable life lessons. While most parents agree on the value of chores, they are somewhat divided on whether kids should be paid for helping around the house.
Do you think kids should be paid for doing household chores? Is it a good way to teach kids the value of work? Or are you bribing kids to pull their own weight? What did your parents do?
