We do, but it's not for doing chores and it's not regular. I feel like they live here, doing chores is part of being in this family. I will not pay them for that. However, we give them coins for doing "extra" things, like being extra nice to each other when playing, sharing without being asked, doing a chore that isn't their normal responsibility, etc. Basically when going above what's expected.

We also give tooth-fairy money and excellent report card money.
They each have a money box where they keep all their coins.

Once they have like $10+, anywhere enough to buy a toy, we go to TRU and they spend it on something they want. They actually just spent all their money about 2 weeks ago!
