Financial Peace Jr.

I got this kit yesterday. I'm trying to come up with chores to put on the commission board. Things that are age appropriate and also trying to decide the pay level. What I've got so far is

Making bed, this is ten cents a day.
Picking up toys, 25 cents a day

Sweeping .50
Vacuuming .50

The last two are twice a week chores.

The fines are going to be a real help. Each fine is .50, the offenses are

Not listening
Whining/Fit throwing
Hitting/Kicking or otherwise harming someone.

I figured that the fines need to cost more than the chores.

These are the most basic, and the ones I figure the kids can do. I wouldn't have put vacuuming on there except they surprised me one day and had vacuumed my living room. So, I know they can do it.

I have a 6 year old. A 4 year old, and a 2 year old.

What are everyones thoughts? Suggestions?

I love this idea. I think that when we get to TX, we may do some of those things too. Great job!
