Kids on Wednesday: Neighbourhood jobs

Hi friends,

Encourage your kids to pick up a neighbourhood job.  Evaluate how competent and responsible your child is, and then make a call or post a note to let them apply for one of the following:

– Paper or flyer route

– Pet watching

– Babysitting

– Watering plants

– Cutting grass and weed whacking

– Shovelling driveways or walkways

– Running errands

– Starting a lemonade stand

This is a good way to teach hard work, responsibility, and money management.  Make sure to talk to your kids through about the money aspect of their work, how much to charge, how they will be paid and who will pay them, what to do with the money once it’s earned.
