It's spring break for him (he's 12) and last week I gave him a list of about 100 chores to do. He has all the time in the world to do them and he doesn't even have to do most of them if he doesn't want to, but I said I'd pay him 5-20 bucks for all the different ones.
He just wants this xbox thing and 2 games that cost a ridiculous amount so he's working almost night and day, a lot of time in the yard or on the house.
Now my neighbor just came over and said she knows what I've been doing and she's going to call CPS on me for child slave labor!
What do I Do? Is she crazy or do I stop him from doing so much?
Well tell her She needs ot get a life and stop bieng a bored busy body ... Tell her why she thinks that... I am pretty sure can not get in trouble for that and laugh in her face and explain why is doingtihs .. She still whines let them come and you can show them the fair deal you made... What a bored looser your neighbor is......
You aren't making him do it, he's doing it because he wants to, he wants something so badly that he is willing to work hard for it. I would be proud of your ds. Your neighbor has no idea what's really going on , just ignore her.
