    Absolutely agree and look forward to your follow-up post. We are a group 1 family and started allowance at age 4. We have never treated brushing teeth, getting dressed, making beds, or picking up their belongings as chores. Those are family and personal responsibilities that they have to do- no money involved. We define chores as actual contributions to lessen the workload on one of the parents. For example, folding laundry or emptying the dish washer is something that reduced mom’s work, and thus is a task worthy of allowance.

  2. I like the idea of defining chores as things that lessen the work load of others. Very nice way to define! There is a post about chores by age today and allowance by age tomorrow. Rene
