with pros / cons of hiring/paying kids to build their college funds?

Whose kids? Your own kids? I don't think there's much benefit to them to have the money into their names, more of it is expected to go toward college expenses.

On the other hand declared income can be beneficial because they can put it into a Roth IRA. I believe 2gifts can talk more about the benefit of that.
