Kids can be unbelievable help around the house if parents will let them. BusyKid suggests providing children weekly chores they can complete to earn an allowance. Giving your kids an allowance for assigned chores gives them the invaluable opportunity to learn financial responsibility. Raising kids is hard, but you must give them the keys to success by helping them develop a solid work ethic and basic understanding of personal finance from an early age.
Think of BusyKid as your kid’s first job. You assign weekly chores on our easy-to-use mobile app, your child completes the chore, and then gets paid every Friday. Join us in our mission of helping children grow to have a strong work ethic and financial skills that will last a lifetime.
