When you were growing up, did you get an allowance? Do you recall how much?
I remember getting one in high school, if I was not working. It was $15.00, I think, and I had to use it for gas, lunch at school, or whatever else I needed.
Our kids are asking for one and it might just be time to start. Know a friend gives half the kids age. Read a few web sights that said that, too, and up to $1.00 per year of life per week. That would be more than I think we can do. Half their age seems doable.
How much do you give your kids? When did you start? And lastly, what do they need to pay for with their allowance?
Please leave your thoughts in the comments, I am truly interested!!
