  • Nothing. they do chores because they are expected to clean up after themselves. Sometimes I offer extra jobs that they can earn a few bucks doing ($1-$5) but they are rare. We could never afford to give them a regular allowance. They are 10, 9, 8 and 5.

  • Not so much an allowance but he earns money. He gets money for doing well in baseball, or he gets money for making good grades or what not, depending on how well he does is how much money he gets.

  • $1 per week per grade of school is what some of my friends give their kids. (Fifth grade students would get $5 per week; Seniors would get $12 per week).
