I did mention a little of this in my other post, but I want to try and instill some independence/gratitude in His Lordship. I make at least 5 trips of 40km round to take him to work/video shops/mates etc. plus all the normal duties of a mother. I have only been charging him $50 board a week which I know is cheap. However, it wasn't about money when he came home, and it still isn't. Now it's about his attitude towards helping out "because I already pay board" I want to try a chart/points system. Does anyone have some ideas? Jobs, for points, points for rewards (but in this case, he will earn his trip to the video shop, or the ride to work, or his meals etc. ) I tried to look one up on the internet, but I'm very challenged in this area. Could someone tell me, 'click here' and I'll find it? Someone suggested, charge $X for hourly rate of my time to do for him.
