hi i'm new to this board. I have a few questions for all you wonderful moms out there. I have a ten yr.old boy who DOESN"T have any chores. Now, before you go and say "how could you not give this child chores?" He is a very good kid and does things when he is told with no back talk and no questions asked. He keeps his room fairly neat and tidey besides the few big toys that don't fit in the toy box. When i do tell him to pick up his room he does it and it's done within five-ten minutes. I don't allow the kids to have toys downstairs because my house is not there "playroom" that's what they have a bedroom for. Do you think i should start giving him a chore to do? or is keeping his room clean enough? do you give allowance? What is the going rate these days? i know when i was growing up we didn't get money for doing chores. Thakns for the help.
