Not because i don't want to, but at this moment we are unable to (i work and make salary, but husband is disabled and unemployed right now).

So it's hard with one income.

The kids have normal responsibilities to help out around the house: make their beds, put clothes in hamper in their room, and pick up after playing with toys, bring their plates, glasses, utensils to the sink, ect.

They get rewards if they go above or beyond, so know how that works.

Hope to do allowances sometime in the future.

I don't give mine allowances either, Debbie. We are on a tight budget as well and it is all we can do to keep the house running at times. But, they do get money if they want to go to the movies or something like that.

I so agree with you on that! In fact, some experts say to not even call them 'chores' but 'household contributions'.
