If you want to recapture your youth, just cut off his allowance. ~ Al BernsteinMy son is starting junior high next week and I was wondering how much allowance to give him. He claims that his classmates from grade school gets allowance already and he doesn't.
A friend of mine suggested that I based it on the age. He's 12 so he should get $12/month as allowance. I was expecting her to say $12/week, but she said its $12/month. What do you think?
He will be taking public transit to school part of the way so we will be buying him monthly bus passes. At the same time we will provide him with a prepaid cellphone so we will know where he is or he can call us for any emergency. He will have his lunch with him. Do you really think he still needs to get allowance from us? How much is not too much?
