I'm hoping the mums and dads on this board can give me some answers to my questions. We want to start giving DS10 and DS5 an allowance. My older son is alway wanting the newest video games etc. We don't give in at all, but we're thinking to make this a 'learning moment'. Teaching him he has to earn his pocket money and he needs to spend it responsibly. Does anyone here give their kids an allowance ? What chores were they doing at similar ages to my 2 ? How much were you giving them ? Sorry for all the questions, but I'm really in the dark here ! Thanks again !
