HELP ME!! All my children are in dire need of holiday funds and whilst my entreprenerial daughter has already got herself a job, my youngest child (aged 13) is too young so needs help.
This morning he’s up bright and early ready to help me with chores.
This is frankly a disaster and marginally difficult because I slightly feel that these jobs should be done for free in manner of kindness and community love.
Everything takes twice as long once children have attempted to clean things I find.
I don’t want him to wash the car because last time he ruined it by using a brillo pad.
I don’t want him to sort the garden because last time I gave that job to my older son he cut all the wrong things down.
I don’t want him to sort out clothes or cupboards because it will only go wrong.
WHAT CAN I GIVE HIM TO DO?
It is easier just to pay him to go out.
Actually, I think that might be his tactic.
ps – he’s just cleaned my outside table for me – good job (not):-
