Do your kids have any chores?
Do they get paid to do them?
How many chores do you think is too many?

The only chore my kids have is to keep their rooms clean (and they fail at it miserably). They do not get paid to do it, but we might bribe them to do it with promises of toys or snacks.

I think that anytime you have to FORCE your child to do a chore, that is one too many. If they are willing to do it for money as a reward without crying about it, that's fine. I didn't have chores until I was almost in High School. My dad paid me to clean the kitchen and fold laundry because he knew I needed gas money and he wasn't just going to GIVE it to me. As soon as I got a job outside of the house I didn't do those chores anymore.

Right now Lucy doesn't and all I ask of Jasmine is she cleans up after herself. When we are doing a big house clean I will ask Jas to do small tasks at the time as well. They don't and probably will never be paid to do it. It makes me sad when I hear of kids who only have time after school to do their homework and chores and have no fun time. I think too many comes when parents are asking their kids to do chores so that they can sit and rest.
