Subject: household chores
…My sister and I share all the chores. We have cards with the chores and our names on each side. Once there is a household chore, I flip over the card and if it has my sister‘s name, it means it’s her chore to do. Do you hate doing chores or don’t you mind them? Is it a good idea to pay kids for doing chores? And why do you think kids should help out at home?
…Yesterday I went to Amazon and bought a book…

Thanks for shooting me a message! It’s great to hear how you and your sister handle chores together.
You had some questions, right? Happy to answer them. As for chores, I don’t mind them, but I wouldn’t say I love them either. No doubt, paying kids for doing chores can be a good idea if it’s done in a way that helps them learn the value of money. I think kids should help out at home because it teaches teamwork, responsibility, and important life skills.
Now, onto the book you bought on Amazon. I’m curious! What book did you buy? What genre does it fall under? Who’s the author of the book?
That’s all for now. Write back soon.
