Quoting ♥▀londetourage:" My 13 year old is babysitting occasionally my 3 year old (his sister of course) and I pay him a salary ... [snip!] ... of everything he saves....to teach him good saving habits? or does anyone else have a good idea that has worked for them?"
I hate money, I use it...but I also hated my smurf car years ago and used it. I like to reward with letting my son choose a family activity. We do points. Last time he helped with his sister and did his chores he chose for me and him to watch Star wars III and have corn dogs and popcorn.
