I got a little oversealous for my daughters first tooth and gave her 5 dollars and the second tooth she got a little sack full of change (about 1.50) Becasue the tooth fairy forgot to go to the store and make change so she dumped out her stash of pennies) lol

Wow!
Lol

None of my kids have actually lost a tooth yet but I think $1 would be my max.
I got a quarter as a kid. Lol

That's not very much over the course of several years. We made several phone calls when our oldest lost her first. That was the going rate for everyone we knew. I would hate for her to think the tooth fairy likes her friends or neighbors better. Also, saying $100 per kid for teeth makes it sound even less expensive. That's $15-20 per year depending on the rate at which they lose their teeth. That's just over $1 per month. That could fit in any budget. :)

It is for me lol I live paycheck to paycheck, so $1 a tooth is fine for my kid.

For me it's not that we can't afford it.
$1 covers 2 days of lunch money at school.
$5 for a tooth just seems a little crazy.

I'm not gonna do something for my kid just cause all the other moms are doing it.
I could come up with plenty of reasons they get more money.
