Re: If I can ask..How much do/will you give your child for allowance?

We will be giving allowances, just haven't figured out what to do. My parents made me save all my money and not use a dime of it. While it was good for the saving aspect, I did NOT learn the value of money. My dh, however, was able to earn money and decide how to spend it. He always acted as a 'bank' for his older siblings and would lend them money and charge interest (lol!). He's a lot better with $ than I am.

Regarding clothing, I think as they get older (and develop preference)...we'll buy the basics and then anything extra will have to be with their allowance money - objects OR clothing. Not a separate clothing allowance.
