Monopoly Money for Treats

Category Summer Fun

When grandkids are visiting for the summer I have already bought up lots of things from garage sales and then they help with different tasks at the house. They can earn Monopoly money to "buy" one of these treats. (No help, no treat!)

Hm-m-m-mm, I'm thinking that kids should not have to be bribed in order to do whatever they're asked. It could be a never ending challenge and both sides would eventually lose. If there is an especially hard job one needs help with, there's nothing wrong with a little reward. But, if the child refuses to help, the parents need to be told and you deserve feedback/results/apology from the child, unless they are very small. I believe ages 6 -9

can help in small ways, ages 9-12 can help in bigger ways, and over 12 can help in all ways. If there is no willingness, it's a sign of poor character and bad conscience/training. It's never too late to teach them
what good character means. It helps if they are rooted in strong faith that teaches what is morally right in the sight of the Creator of Heaven and Earth,
and what He expects from children. This can be done in a loving but firm manner during a quiet time
such as bedtime or meal time, when one has the children's attention. If a child is taught nothing in particular, they will believe in anything and behave
in an unpredictable manner, rebellious to authority,
and disrespectful to family, thinking more of themself than others, which is the opposite of what
