Yes. It's often a child's first lesson or exposure to the work/earning income concept.

We did because SS earned it and we wanted him to understand saving and spending from an early age However, here recently he lost all of his allowance twice in a matter of three months. So we stopped until he was a little more ready to handle it. He snuck his wallet to BMs house and left it there for about 2 weeks. No one has any recollection of him spending it and he had $25 when he left with it and nothing when it came home. Then the second time he was playing with his wallet and lost it in his bedroom. I still think the money is at the bottom of a toybox, but I am not sure. He now has $10 but we keep his wallet in the safe at home now.
