When to introduce an allowance, for what and how much?
- August 18, 2012 at 6:06 pm #21718
We’re thinking of starting an allowance for our soon to be kindergartner. What age did you start? What were the chores? For what amount of allowance? I was thinking of doing $3.00 per week with 3 daily chores each day. $1.00 would be for saving, $1.00 for giving away to someone in need and $1.00 for spending. My husband thought more like $.75 (a quarter for each bucket). For chores, I came up with making her bed, setting the table and not sure about another. Any thoughts on all of this?August 20, 2012 at 9:48 am #21720
Funny. I asked the same thing when my son was going into Kindergarten and got a bunch of ideas here:August 20, 2012 at 6:47 pm #21721

It must be the season for questions like this! A few weeks ago I was looking for ideas of chores to have my kids help out with around the house (though I wasn’t really planning to pay them!). I got some great idea suggestions from other members here. Maybe some of these ideas will be a good starting place for you…
