I was curious how allowance is handled in your homes in regards to stepkids and what type of custody situation you have. What is the allowance for?
Here we have SS8 50% of the time and pay up to $5.00 a week for allowance. This is for keeping his room cleaned and doing a few extra things around the house depending on what needs to be done (trash, litter pan, etc). We pay on Sundays, and have him at least a portion of every week (start of the custody week is Thursday). Half of what he earns goes into savings, which he can't touch at this point.
Really this is just a curiousity question. I wasn't sure how those of you that have the SKs every other weekend handle allowance.
