Eva came home from school asking for chores and an allowance. Then she asked me what was an allowance. After we talked it through, she was excited to have "my own dollars" and save for something special. So we made a chore list. The last two were my idea, obviously.
·picking up dirty clothes·
·picking up her toys·
·keeping blankets and her pets in her bed·
·putting shoes and coats in the closet·
·being a great listener·
·using nice words and gentle hands·
Dishes were not on her list but she was so excited to get started she took over for me. She is currently saving her weekly allowance for a new fairy doll.
Last night, the toys in the living room were picked up and put away in record time!
