  • It depends on the kids behavior and if they complete their chores. I'm not going to set an amount but it should be according to what you can afford to give them and if you know what they will use it for & if they use the money wisely. some kids might buy out a candy store if u let them lol

  • chores first then up to $10.00 per child and the 16 year old should get a job if they want more
