Do you give your kids an allowance? Mine are 11 and 12 and we do not but we do pay for certain jobs done around the house. Thoughts?
I don't. I will get the kids things but I don't just give them money usually.
My mom did for us, once I was 8 and Ben was 5. If we did all of our chores, at the end of the week we would get ten-twenty bucks. We had opportunities to earn more all throughout the week, usually. My MIL did for my husband and SIL, too, but she was at the other end of the spectrum and only gave maybe a dollar at most at the end of the week.
I would probably do an allowance, too, once Nina is around ten or so. I'm not sure how much...it would depend on her grades, what she did, and whether or not she argued about doing housework.
We won't do allowance in our home. :)
There are things that I expect my kids to do around the house to help... since they do live here - and are provided for (excessively at times). But extra things like mowing the lawn, yard work, extra jobs around the house that we do pay for.
