Different Ways For Kids To Make Money Powered By Docstoc
					Most parents want to teach their children about the importance of money and
spending it wisely. However, this is very difficult to do if your children do not
actually earn any of their own money. Fortunately, there are ways for kids to make
money and this article can tell you how.

To help your kids work for their money, you can actually give them little jobs around
the house that you pay them for. For instance, if your car needs to be washed, you
might want to offer a small payment to them in exchange for washing the vehicle.
Also, you can provide them with small monetary rewards for doing all of their chores
on time each week.

If you live in a community where everybody knows each other and you all feel that
you can trust one another, you can have your kids do some odd jobs for these people.
For instance, some kids will go around the neighborhood mowing lawns or helping
people with cleaning.

If your child is quite good at riding his or her bicycle, you might want to ask them to
sign up for the local paper route. This job provides your child with a real job and they
will be paid regularly for their work if they do the job right each week.

If your kids love making odd little things or great little inventions, let them try selling
their ideas or products. You can go door to door or you could set up a little store in
your front yard with them. You can also have them try selling good old fashioned
lemonade.

There are many ways for kids to make money nowadays. Help them figure out which
methods will work best for them and provide them with some opportunities at home if
possible. Additionally, don't forget to support and encourage them along the way.
