Let me start this by saying , I NEVER got an allowance. I just did my chores or what I was asked to do.
My Mother paid me with a roof over my head, clothes on my back and food to eat. lol Things were ALL business as a kid in my house in the 80’s
I found this survey. It looked at how much we pay our kids for different chores.
69% of parents said they give their kids an allowance, and the average is $5.24 a week.
That’s for kids between 4 and 14.
The average four-year-old rakes in $2.58 a week. If you are 14, it’s $8.32
Doing dishes, $2.56 . . .
Vacuuming, $2.42 . . .
Taking out the trash, $1.84 . . .
and helping with laundry, $1.63.
If your kids do any work outside, that is where the good money is found.
The average parent says weeding/gardening is worth $10.66 . . .
raking leaves, $5.47 . . . washing the car, $5.20 . . . and walking the dog, $3.89.
Finally, if you bring home a solid report card $7.83 . . . doing their homework is worth $3.45 (WHAT?!?!?!?!) . . . and just “being good” is worth $2.89.
