Dr. Allison Rees* talks a lot about responsibility-building and how important it is to allow children to experience natural consequences.
Dr. Allison Rees* believes that chores are part of being a family and not part of earning money.
supports the concept of allowance to give children the opportunity to learn how to manage money and to give children the ability to get some of their wants.
says to keep the money out of it unless kids are given a responsibility that goes beyond normal expectations (i.e. kids could earn money for a big job like cleaning up branches in the yard).
