One of the common misconceptions of unschooling is that is it permissive parenting.
Many people think that giving your kids freedom over their lives and choices somehow means that you will give them everything and anything they want… Not True!
In our house we try to give our kids as much real life reality data as possible, including the opportunity to earn their own money.
When they want to buy something, rather than give them the money or the thing, I do everything within my power to help them how to figure out a way to earn it.
Buying it for them is easy; helping them to figure out a way to earn it is much more effort, but so much more rewarding.

I’m curious… what are the ways you help your kids to earn money? I’d love some more ideas so please let me know in the comments.
