Do you make your children earn an allowance or do you just give them $
Do you make your children earn an allowance or do you just give them money?
My son is 12y/o and he doesn't have an allowance..
He keeps his room clean, his bathroom clean and has good behavior and with that earns the occasional new video game or whatever it is he asks for at the time (just one thing not multiple things)..
Last night he tells me he wants to earn an allowance so he can have money to spend on "whatever he wants"
I don't like the sound of that.. Am I being too controlling? I don't know what job to give him anyway there is no yard work we have a landscaper and I do all the housework except his room and bathroom and I like doing that!
