The kids are working for fair bucks, they've been at it for 3 days. Tomorrow is the fair and they are excited. Some of the days of work have been more enthusiastic than others but for the most part it's gone well.
The kids want an allowance and I am reluctant. We have tried allowances in the past but it's always been difficult to decide what do kids get paid for, what do they do because they are part of the family, how much, what should they spend their money on, if they make some money should they also be responsible for things like buying presents for friends, or going to the movies or should it all be for their fun....it's a tough call and hard to track.
Needs more thought.
