Blake gets an allowance of $3.00 per week IF he gets his chores completed. He gets to mark each daily chore off, and if he missed any, he "misses" some of his allowance! He hasn't missed one yet!!! To give him a visual...I broke the $3.00 down into 12 quarters so that we could visually cross a quarter off if he doesn't get a job done. You don't get paid if you don't do the job! :)
His chores include: feed/water the dog twice per day, put his laundry away, brush teeth twice per day (had to add this to make sure it gets done!), pick-up family room each evening-mostly toys. I started very simple to ensure he could realistically meet the goals. Now that I know it's working, I am definitely adding some of the chores I dread!! lol!!
