What do you think about making kids do it?


Household Chore - Shaketha Marion McGregor Version

Household Chore Job postings. Application forms. In-house credit unions. No, these aren’t the hallmarks of an up-and-coming business or a job fair, but rather, a part of everyday life in one family home in The Great State of Georgia.

Mother of three, Shaketha Marion McGregor wanted to teach her munchkins an important real-life lesson about earning money. That’s why she decided that from now on, them getting their allowance won’t be as easy as coming up to her and nagging her for it. She created a hiring event where her kids applied for ‘jobs’ around the house — this way, they have to work for their allowance just like grown-ups.

“My children continue to ask for a new cell phone, an allowance, and to go places,” Shaketha wrote on Facebook. “If you want it, work for it, earn it!” She also jokingly added two hashtags: #ThisMomMeansBusiness and #IWonderWhoWillGetFiredFirst. This mom’s post received more than 213,000 likes, over 35,000 comments, and was shared a staggering 130,000 times. With numbers like these, Shaketha seems to have the soul of a successful businesswoman.

The jobs were kitchen manager, lead housekeeper, and laundry supervisor
