I stumbled upon an interesting article online regarding children and allowances
Do you have allowances in your household? Does it work? What is the dollar amount designated for each child? Do you do it by age? When I was young, we had a $5 allowance per payday (every two weeks). So $10 a month. I remember kids my age getting $30 a month and I thought they were rich. hahahaa I know that sounds silly, but I really thought they were so rich and I must not be. Every household had different amounts, while other households had no allowance at all. I am thinking of starting an allowance with my kids. Even though my is extremely tight, hopefully I can stretch it even further to include allowances for each child.
