Allowance for chores
When I was growing up, I got around 5 bucks every week for chores.
When I was in High School some of my friends received 20 bucks for dong NOTHING.
Anyone else receive an allowance for chores when growing up?
No allowance here! We did everything in the house and got nothing.
We never had actual allowance, but we did have plenty of chores and if we wanted something from the store and it was only a few dollars we usually got it if we had behaved and done our chores all week.
I got an allowance but it wasn't dependent on chores. I had to do those regardless. My mom was just super cool about making sure I had spending money. But if I messed up and got grounded I didn't get that money.
No allowance for me or my brother. We still had to do chores though as that was a part of being a productive member of the family. I was given money for food at school and my parents would buy things for me here and there. I like the idea of an allowance as you can learn to budget it. However I don't like the idea of giving money for doing everyday chores as that should be what is expected when you are part of a family.
