Michael has requested an allowance. Since we don't give out free money, we have made a list of chores that Michael can do to earn some extra money. Mowing the lawn is one such chore.
He is working on his straight lines.
He sometimes forgets large sections of the lawn, especially those that are not directly in a straight line-of-sight, but he is getting better each time.
Michael has also learned to clean his bathroom this summer, how to unload the dishwasher, and how to take out the trash (in addition to his regular responsibilities). Michael sure is growing up.
We use My Job Chart, where he can login and check when he is finished with his work and can earn points, which are turned in to cash.
He is learning to be a hard worker, and he is very helpful.
