Kids are cheap labor for your DIY home improvement project
Be forewarned, though. Many children start out as lousy workers. They can be slow, sloppy, and sometimes whiny. On the positive side, they are cheap labor willing to work for candy, ice cream, and toys. As they grow, their demands increase, as with the case of my teen who recently agreed to cut firewood so she could have her first taste of beer (that I knew of).
