No, no - I must disagree.

Yvette, I love your blogs, but must disagree with this one. As a finance expert and a Mum of 3, there is huge benefit in paying pocket money for chores. It is a fantastic way to teach kids the concept of work for reward. To avoid the development of a WIFM mindset though, you simply arrange a set amount of pocket money each week for a set chore each week. It doesn't (shouldn't) take the place of the general helping out with other chores because, as you said, kids should be expected to help out as a matter of course.
