Oh yea, that is a great approach. Including the kids in the business and giving them responsibilities (even picking up styrofoam peanuts) opens up all types of opportunities for hands-on learning and growth.

That's the best part!!!

Actually, I pay my son $5.00 per hour for his work. He then has to manage his time card and what he spends.

Lisa,
My daughter used to do the same thing at home, get into all my paperwork and totally get me out of order. I set up a little desk next to mine with her own pens "crayons", paper, folders and she loved it. She had her own little office and left my stuff alone.
