Who knew that doing your chores could bring you fortune and fame?
Alec and Ryan Bergh Thies of Scotch Plains know it now. The ten-year-old fraternal twins are featured in the June 20, 2012 Wall Street Journal. Read the online version here.
The WSJ chronicles how the boys have been utilizing their allowance money which they have been earning since they were 6-years-old by doing various chores around the house. They each receive $4 a week: $2 they can spend, $1 they must depost in a savings account, and $1 allocated for charity.
Guided by their parents, Martha Bergh and Eric Thies, the boys have been making some very good choices.
Way to go, Alec and Ryan!
