BigMike, think smarter, let others work harder is my motto. These type task are the only reasons we have teenage sons or in my case, teenage grandsons. I see a perfectly good teaching example going to waste here...........lessons learned by our children or grandchildren about the rewards for hard work are sorely lacking IMHO.

I don't see it as exploitation at all......... instead, I see it as a life lesson that will greatly benefit them in adult life.............wax on, wax off. Hey, I mowed 1/2 acre lawns for $10 as a youth..........I don't understand why my grandson isn't happy with $10.

Inflation!

I got $20, but that was to mow, edge, weedeat, rake (if necessary) sweep, and clean up. And it better be done before dad gets home, or he'll do it himself and you lose out on the opportunity! AND there was no "helping" dad for "some" of the money, it was all or nothin'!
