Mom Holds Job Fair for her Kids!

This Brilliant Mom Held a Job Fair to Teach her Kids about Money!

If you have kids, you may have also had this conversation with them: “Mom, I want (insert toy, device, food item, etc.)” which may lead to talking about allowances. This mom from Georgia had that conversation with her kids, but she handled it in a genius way.

Instead of just giving her kids money for doing work around the house, Shaketha McGregor held a job fair and conducted professional interviews with her children for one of three available jobs: Kitchen Manager, Lead Housekeeper, or Laundry Supervisor. They’d discuss their skills as well as deliberate over schedules and wages.

To me, this is a brilliant idea because it not only helps the kids learn a sense of responsibility and how to handle money, but it’s also a great experience for when they enter the workforce! This mom sure means business (pun completely intended)! Now I wonder if her kids can put that on their resumé?
