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

The LO is 6. He gives her 2.00 a week. But she has to earn the amount by doing additional chores. Not just her daily ones. The amount can also be reduced due to behaviour.

We buy her clothes. I won't allow her to dictate that she has to have something. This will be harder as she gets older though but that is way we are the parental unit. The other day she expressed an interest in black. He and I share similar cultural values so black on a child to us is a big no no. We will allow her to pick from an assortment of clothes before we buy. But if she has grown lately and all of a sudden she has high-water pants well... What can you do?
