I'm actually thinking of paying my three grandchildren to do their chores. I have custody of them, ages 5, 7, and 11, and I have trouble getting them to do chores, especially the older one! The younger ones like to "help out" a lot of the times, but not always, and the older one - Grrrr!!! I used to think it was wrong to pay kids to do household chores. They live in the house, they should help maintain it, right? But I'm getting tired of the hassle. So I'll pay the older one, maybe, and give the younger ones little prizes, and we'll see how that works.
