Children should get paid to do chores. Children have to learn responsibilities and a better way to teach them is too pay them to work. Children want money for games and toys, but parents aren't just made of money. An easy way for children to get money is to pay them for doing your jobs. Not only do you get chores done around the house, but the children won't be bothering you about money. They will learn how to be a responsible adult later in their life.

Parents should give their kids allowances because children can"t earn money on their own and it would not be fair if the children were the only ones in the house that didn"t have any money when they want something or they go some place. Another reason is that children can learn about the value of money. Children can put $100 on a tablet or phone and every time they use that device studies show that they will use and like it more than if their parent payed for it. Another reason is that it makes doing things for your parents worth while, now kids should be eager to do things for their parents but a weekly allowance just gives them the extra push to do a good job and in a timely fashion. The last two reasons is because of equality and high self-esteem. Children like to feel equal to their parents so what better way to do that then to let them have some freedom? High self-esteem is a big part in growing up, it does not feel good to be the only one without something like a phone or a pair of the nicest shoes, but if you can get allowance the child can buy those new shoes or phone and they could have something to feel real good about .

I think that kids should get paid to do chores. Kids will be able to learn the responsibility of working hard to get paid. Kids can also learn to be responsible about managing their money. Studies show that children who get paid to do their chores do better in school and their future careers. Also children who get paid become more self-sufficient. Parents who work get paid to do their job, so why shouldn"t kids get paid for working hard around the house to help their parents. Kids will learn that if they work hard they will get a certain amount of money so in the future when they have jobs they will work hard so they can get that certain about of money they need. Parents get stressed a lot after a log day of work so if kids help and get paid parents will be able to relax and take a load off.
