Kids shouldn't get paid for doing chores around the house. These are things that have to be done and since you live in the house you kinda have to help too. It's not like your parents don't give you money to go to the movies of for lunch anyways. What do children gain by doing Chores well one day mommy and daddy won't be there to hold there hands for every thing. Theres not much of a reason why children shouldn't have to do chores. I do most anything around my house except wash dishes.
