lots of solid parenting advice here. Thank you.
If you can't fix it, forget it.

My daughter is 6 and she gets 25cents per chore, there are 5-8 that she can do every day. (though it's more like 1-2 that she actually does) Our deal with her is that she has to pay for half of anything that she wants.

It doesn't mean the we don't get her stuff, example we got my bonus check and she really wanted 2 different Build a Bears, we paid for one and she saved up and paid for half of the 2nd one a month later. Keeps her motivated and she gets excited every time we hand her a quarter because it's instant earnings. She really wants a Kindle Fire, but she's 6 and a little unnecessary, but I had enough frequent flyer miles so we got one for her for free and now she has to give half her chore money to charity. Until she pays off part of the device.

The whole point is that she is learning the value of money and hardwork. (and I have never seen a kid get excited to clean the cat box daily)
