Parents are always trying to teach their kids about money and the value of things, and one mom in Georgia has come up with one of the best ideas we’ve heard. Shaketha Marion McGregor shared the clever plan she came up with for her kids to earn their allowance in a Facebook post, where it’s gone viral.
McGregor writes that her children “continue to ask for a new cell phone, an allowance, and to go places,” so she surprised them with a “job fair.” She put up flyers advertising the hiring event offering them jobs, so they could earn the money themselves for all the things they want.
The mom offered positions including “kitchen manager,” “lead housekeeper,” and “laundry supervisor” and even printed out application forms and held interviews with her kids. She writes, “If you want it, work for it, earn it!”
