I asked before my son turned 5 about him getting an allowance when he turned 5. I got lots of input! Thank you!
BUT many moms (and a few magazines I've read) say not to tie allowance to chores. Why not?
When grown ups go to work, they earn their money. No worky, no money. Doesn't it make sense for your kids to have a couple of chores to arn some spending money? Instead of just giving them an allowance for no reason.
You can teach them the value of money management/saving AND a good work ethic at the same time. My husband agrees.
So... why is this so wrong?

I never got an allowance growing up, and don't plan on giving my kids one. I was expected to keep my room clean, and help wherever mom and dad asked. I did get paid for good grades however, and may do the same for my kids. My dad always said doing good in school can pay off in the long run, so I got $20 for every A,and $10 for every B. As a child I was given money for birthdays, Valentine's Day, and Halloween (from grandparents). I saved it or used it to get myself things. When I was 12 I babysat around the neighborhood for money, and when I was 15 I got my first real job. There would be times where my parents would offer me some cash if I washed their car, or ran an errand for them, etc.
