Then say you will invest that dime, with a 50% return on investment per week. After a week, he would have $.15. Then after another week, and another dime, he would have $.38.

Do this for 6 weeks. He might appreciate the notable difference between $.60 and his "investments" and take that lesson to heart.

I've never met anybody who is a parent and has time or energy for this kind of system.
