This post is really a poll....How much money do your kids receive as an allowance?
For years the boys have had chores. We don't have a chore chart or set chores--other than trash and recycling on Fridays. It has been more of a we ask, they do.
During those years the boys have been asking for an allowance. We have never given it. They receive birthday and Christmas money from relatives. And, honestly, up until this year, didn't do THAT much around the house that we warranted deserving an allowance. That is beginning to change as they get older. Like most tweens they are more than capable and quite efficient at bigger jobs now.
And in case you missed it: We are hoping to travel to Korea in the next year (please!) and they really want money to bring with them to buy electronics. They are insistent that a Play Station 3 is only going to cost a few dollars there--we've told them otherwise.
The other night we went to bed to find this:
(this is not a shameless plug for the straw cup--it can always be found on my nightstand :)
A few sweet little reminders on the bed, pillows and clock that they would like us to "talk about chores + alowance" or "allowance".
I would appreciate hearing how much kids are earning these days in allowance?
What is your family's going rate?
