an allowance. That is all.
My youngest child asked me for an allowance. Does any one give allowances any more? If so how much?
I have 5 kids and each one has about 2 to 3 age appropriate chores. Most have 2 daily chores and 1 weekly chore. Ages are 16,13,12,10,and 9.
I am a single mom, works full-time....my kids don't go without the things they need, but they also don't have an over abundance of useless things either.
We dont have expensive video game systems or i phones. Only 2 have cell phones that are only able to talk and text. I do spoil each one and buy them special things that I know each one adores...like my youngest boy collects stuffed animal dogs. My oldest girl adores any thing horses. So sometimes (not all) when I/we are out and I have money I will buy them something just because.
