We started a new allowance system with the kids this month. We posted extra chores they could do around the house, along with how much that chore was “worth.” If they chose to do the chore, they had to record the date, time, chore, how much it was worth, and then Jake or I had to sign off on it (only if it was done correctly). We helped Jack with his recording, but Josie had to record her own, and add up her own totals each week. They had a earning limit-no more than $20 in the month. ($5 a week) It went pretty well! Josie earned $10.10 for March, and Jack earned $6.25. They get paid at the end of each month.
