Earning Their Way

Gabriel and Abby would love to have a new swing set. In order for them to understand that they can't have everything they want we have started making them earn it by doing many of the things we would like to see them doing on their own anyway. They can earn money to put in the swing set jar by getting dressed, making their beds and cleaning their rooms without being reminded. Helping out without being asked and doing kind things for one another may get recongized as well, but not all the time. I am hoping this will help them understand several things about money and hard work in order to get what you want. We have helped them out with some of the money already but want them to see what their hard work can get them.
