My 15 year old gets $10/week allowance. What should that cover?
Not much but junk food...that's what I was getting in the 80's, allowance wages didn't rise yet?!
the weekly allowance
That would pay for lunch for about two days.
One lunch at the mall with his friends. One week of vending machine items.
Not his weekday school lunches
Very little. Not enough for a movie! This is pocket change. What do you expect it to cover?
Probably a snack at the store
10$ =Pack of smokes or gram of pot! Mind you I don't believe in giving allowances ,
Maybe some food. But you're the parent if you don't wanna give the money than don't!
<---This 16 year old has gotten $0/per week of allowance for 16 years. :pI don't see a reason to give allowance, but I think it's time for no more allowance since they should be getting a job soon.
I wish I got ten dollars every week. I can only get up to three dollars a week. If I have bad behavior, it'll deplete the amount that my parents decide.
Not a lot. Not even starbucks for a week.
