We want to start a chore chart and earned allowance for our 4 year old son. I ordered one off Amazon that arrives tomorrow but curious how other parents approach chores.

I never got an allowance. I was expected to pitch in and do what was asked, so I'm a bit clueless on the allowance deal. I do know I want a few things he doesn't earn an allowance for: self care and cleaning up after himself (so brushing teeth, cleaning up his plate, getting dressed).

So far we have the ideas of he can water the plants, dust and feed our dogs. Any other ideas or what you and your family do would be great.
