  • I started giving my daughter an allowance when she was 7, but I won't give it to her if she doesn't earn it... She has to do chores to get it...

  • My son is 5 and gets $5/wk if his chores are done. We just started on his birthday and he has good weeks and bad weeks. He is saving up (a decision he came to completely on his own) for the imaginex batcave, but he has bought a couple of small toys and a tshirt with his own money so far
