Children absorb knowledge like a sponge and learn well experientially. Even starting with simple things like making the bed every morning, helping mum around the house, or helping dad in the garden is a brilliant start. If the children finish all of their chores at the week's end they have earned their allowance - this teaches them how to be responsible members of a community and reward comes after hard work.
When they get older, the chores may become more challenging and their allowance may rise with their lifestyle. As they start making friends, taking on new hobbies and interests, all that exciting stuff!
