Hi Chris, thank you so much for parenting advice. Indeed washing cars does not interest them, and shoes, makeup clothes etc do. However, all my 5 kids have had paperround to earn dosh.
Eldest working in top end managament recruitmant company in City of London, and owns lovely house in Worc aged 25
Second son working in Amsterdam and doing well as Graphic Designer/Creative Artist for large Dutch Advertising Co.
Eldest Daughter lives at home, yes, but has full time job and pays her way with rent
Youngest Daughter lives at home, works every day after school earning good dosh cleaning school to help run her car, and God Willing be at either Royal Holloway or Plymouth next September studying English with Creative Writing.
Youngest son, I admit is a rebel, hates school, but amazing with fixing/making things....and already offerred apprentice with Family member who runs one of largest hire companies within M25, where he has worked hard and earned dosh every half term for a year or two.
In conclusion I feel my wife, Corinna have done OK bringing kids up, and if I wish to valet ALL my kids cars when they live or visit us, I shall, as I simply love it, and they Dont take it for granted.....they earn their dosh for shoes and makeup, but thank you for your concern.
