Everyday dose of Reality
For a little while now I have been using one of the old chalkboards in the living room as a “Jobs for Hire” board for the kids. The board is used for jobs around the house or yard that are things not included in their normal chores. It lists the job needed to be done, what the pay for that job will be and the person who wants the job, writes their name next to the job. Living in an old school, let me tell you there is never any shortage of things to do around here. This gives the kids a chance to earn a little extra money to save for a dance, going shopping or whatever they want to save it for. As the jobs are completed they come get me and I approve or point out things they missed before a payout is made. So far, the board has worked well for them and me 🙂 If you are considering a Jobs for Hire board, it can be on paper, poster board, a white board or anything you can come up with to post for the kids to see. Good luck in your hiring process.
