Why Creating Jobs at Home for Kids to Earn Money is Better Than the Old-Fashioned Allowance

Creating jobs at home for kids to earn money

  • Can teach them life skills they will need for the rest of their life
  • Teaches them the importance of being responsible and doing a good job
  • Can give them a sense of pride and accomplishment
  • Can teach them money management skills

Giving them an old-fashioned allowance

  • Teaches them they can get money without doing anything for it
  • Can cause them to have a sense of entitlement
  • Doesn’t teach them the true value of money
