Default Does your kid mow the grass????

Like the title says.....Do your kids mow your grass? If so do you pay them and if so how much do you pay for how big of yard?

We have 3 acres and I'd say about half is mowable so around 1.5 acres of grass to cut. My son started helping to mow around 8 and is 11 now and can do it on his own including airing up low tires and checking oil before he starts. Its a zero turn and he does a good job, very rarely do I have to point out any missed spots. He also blows off the drive, porches, and sidewalk. I've been giving him $20 for his work. Just curious what others are paying for similar job.

Wife pays the kiddo (and previously his older brothers) to mow our regular neighborhood yard $20. When I have/had them do it I don't pay and I reference room and board and lack of them paying me rent. In both cases they'd usually half-*** the first mow of the year and I make them go back out and fix it, then future attempts are much better. They learned to jump real quick when the wife offers to pay them because if they don't I'm just gonna make them do it for free when it hits my radar.

Yes both of my daughters 14 & 17 help mow the yard. No we don’t pay them. I figure all that we buy/do for them thy is the least they can do is my philosophy.

Our kids do a variety of chores for their allowance, which is $5/wk. clean/brush the pool, mow, dust, vacuum, bathrooms, their laundry, etc. Each of my boys has taken a shift at mowing the front yard (backyard is landscaped and unmowable). If we were to break down their chores, each mow would come out to about $1.50-$2.00. Both first mowed at the age of 10 with close parent supervision, but now at 13/14, it’s more of a “get your butt out there and mow the grass” kind of thing.

Son did until he went to college. Never moved back home He did it reluctantly cause we didn't pay him. Cited the old room board, it's family stuff, we gotta help each other out. Daughter got a free pass due to she's a girl. So Momma helped with yard stuff (still does) but Jess would still volunteer on occasion.

A simple chore like mowing, no. Going above and beyond like pressure washing, cleaning gutters or painting the fence sure. Teaches them that if they want more than everybody else they have to do more than everybody else.

My boy started mowing our front yard a year or so ago and I’d mow the back. Neighbor saw him and now he gets $20 to mow there’s. This was with a push mower I’ve since upgraded to a zero turn so the deal is for him to use it he has to mow our whole yard. I still do the edging and weed eating but about to learn him on that.

Same here. He mows and I weedeat. We take turns on the blower. We do not pay directly but when we head to the lease or fishing I may buy him something he wanted.

What is a green light card.

My kids mowed and did other work around the house and my office when they were growing up. I paid them. I also made sure that they gave at least 10% of what they earned to the church and that they saved at least 10% of what they earned. I would match everything that they saved. They could save more than 10% if they chose to, or they could spend all 80% remaining as soon as I paid them. It was their choice. My goal was to help them learn how to earn money and how to manage it responsibly.

They're both financial advisors today, so maybe it worked.

Also, when they were teenagers, they NEVER came and asked me for money. If they ever needed more money, they'd come and ask my wife or I if we had any work that they could do to earn some more money. That worked out pretty well. If we ever had stuff we didn't want to do, we'd pay them to do it. Win/win.

My dadís response when I asked for an allowance to mow when I was a kid.......ĒGet out there and mow the mother ****ing yard before I put both my boots up your ***.Ē.

I donít pay my kids directly for mowing the yard, but they receive plenty for as little as they actually have to do.

My kids played so much baseball it was hard for them to have jobs to make spending money so I let them mow the yard each week around their baseball schedule. I paid them a little less than what I would pay someone else to mow it. I explained that other guy was providing his own equipment so he to recover some of that in the price for each yard he mowed. They started understanding about revenue and income at and early age, lol.

I pay my son $20 to mow our yard, but he very loosely runs a "lawn service" for people in the neighborhood. It has picked up over the years and I like the work ethic that he is picking up. I also make him do his own negotiations with potential customers which I also believe is an excellent thing to learn.

My proudest moment as his parent though was when a nearly 80 year old man asked him about mowing. He went down and checked out the yard, went into negotiations and charged the man half his usual rate. When I asked him why he told me that he didn't feel right charging the elderly man that much money, and he was afraid that if he priced the yard too high he wouldn't use him and continue to mow the yard himself. He said he wouldn't feel right watching that man mow his own yard at that age.

I did most of the mowing by the time I was 8 or so, dad usually ran the weedeater. He had 2 acres, 1/2 of which he insisted on fertilizing/watering incessantly....and required that it be push mowed and bagged. The rest we mowed with the tractor or riding mower. I got an allowance when I wasn't in trouble, it was like $20 a week for mowing, picking the garden, taking care of the dog, cleaning my room, and whatever other mindless bull**** my mom could dream up to occupy my time. Dad would pay me for helping plant shrubs, did up dead shrubs, clearing out the fenceline, or cleaning up behind the barn....sometimes an agreed upon amount, and sometimes whatever he wanted.

I went to work at the family business when I was 11 and got a little too independent about my home chores, so then the boat didn't leave the barn until the yard was done, so the yard got done!

My son is going to get his first electric weedeater today or tomorrow!

i mowed my mom and dads yard for free always and id mow my grand parents yard for free but they would always give me $5 dollars i mowed all 3 yards tell i was 22 then i moved away and it was not always easy getting down there to mow.
My parents did not pay but they looked out for me, i would never spend that money papa gave me i saved everything. When my kids get older i might give them $5 dollars or so to help out.

Well he's only 11 but he already doesn't ask for me to buy him stuff other than birthday and Christmas. Just like your kid he will come ask for chores to do to earn money. To me, paying him for "work" and then him using his own earned money teaches way more than me not pay him but him always coming and asking me to buy him something. I know for me growing up it was the same. Every single thing I had growing up past the age of 12 was either a birthday or Christmas gift or something I bought with my own earnings. I feel like it taught me way more than just my parents making me do chores for "free" but then them buying me what I wanted.

Yep, clothes, school supplies, the essentials we pay for. Games, toys, junk, its on him. I can't remember what it is he is currently saving for but he has saved all of his mowing money so far this year and has a pretty good little stash. I'm really proud of him.

Mine is 17 now so yes, he will help when he's around. I seem to find myself doing it more than I should since he's become more independent and has more going on. He actually mows several lawns on his own for money since he's playing high school club baseball all summer all over the freaking state and can't really work a normal job. As far a paying my kids, absolutely not. I have told both of them the food they eat, the clothes on their back, and the roof over their heads is their payment for what little they do around the house to help out. I'm not knocking them and they are great kids. If they want to earn money, they can go make it on their own, don't expect me to pay you for earning a tiny fraction of your keep.

*** All of this big talk from someone who bought them both nice vehicle's, pays the insurance, cell phones, pays for college, club baseball, and everything else they could want in life, lol. Mine are self admitted extremely spoiled/fortunate so I don't pay them to help around the house a little.

I paid mine the same as other guys charged, but I told them it was their business and they had to buy their own gas and oil. I did let them use my mower for free. I wasn't that much of a hard ***. But I tried to teach them about running a small business. Either way works, I'm sure. Makes them think about where stuff comes from and how it's paid for.
