We are against an allowance for everyday things like making bed, laundry, keeping room picked up but lately oldest dd has been asking about ways to earn money because she heard about it from school. Im going to talk to dh about it but what are some good ideas that are not an everyday thing you are supposed to do for an almost six year old to earn money? Also how much would you pay?

Maybe if she does extra credit work sheets for school? Doing something for a grandparent or elderly person? Completing a goal that you and she set?

I gave DD $5 the other day for filling up three small buckets with dirt. She is 8. I give her a few bucks here or there for helping me with extra stuff. How much depends on what cash I have or what she asks for money for. This week they were having a lollypop and smencil sale at school. We don't do a regular allowance because she isn't consistant on chores.

I do not have experience yet but I would give allowance for things kinda like what Kristy said. Not everyday "normal" chores, but extra ones. Maybe like racking the leaves, helping set the table, tying up the trash, things like that.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy

We never had it and I think DH is pretty set against it BUT we have listening issues so I hope to implement a new behavior/chore/kindness chart where you earn small things (like marbles or fuzz balls) to fill up a jar and take away from based on good/bad deeds. Once their jar is full they can pick a reward from a list and money will probably be one of them.

BTW I found this idea on Pinterest and can find it if you'd like.

We give pocket money for helping things not directly related to his own care. So things like sweeping, clearing the table for everyone, helping tidy up harrys toys, bringing things upstairs (not his own things), Taking rubbish out of the car etc.
