A mother of 3 identified as Shaketha Marion McGregor on Facebook has been hailed after she took to the social media platform to narrate how she created household jobs and made her kids to apply to get allowance monies.
Shaketha who decided to teach her children an important lesson about money, explained that she had decided to stop giving her them their allowance whenever they nagged her for it, and instead teach them that money is earned.
She facilitated her lesson by hosting a hiring event in her home, where her children were invited to apply for “jobs” around the house, jobs such as kitchen manager, laundry supervisor and lead housekeeper. They would then be paid salaries for these jobs in the form of their allowances.
A number of other parents took to the comments section of her posts to hail the idea as brilliant, and shared that they were thinking of implementing it in their own homes
