Nope I haven't seen the Allowance thread. So this is open. Although a little title change should be well. Like talk about Allowances and your opinion on it.

Edit: In my opinion, parents should give allowances when you start buying stuff for yourself or when you can actually be responsible for the money. Like when you actually use it not leave it around the house. Also it's best to know the kid first, since you don't know what they're going to buy with it. Is it bad or good?

i gotta agree with this. parents give you food clothes and a roof to live under, why should they give you cash as well? come on people earn it! those who say they don't recieve enough money from their parents are selfish and rude. if you want it that bad go and get a job!

This topic is a little messy... should people post in dollars or their local currency?

I suggest you keep the topic to discussing until when it is acceptable for children to receive allowance from their parents.

In my opinion, allowances are a good means for children to learn the value of money, and how to save. To a certain point, they should learn how to account for expenses, and eventually make money for themselves, either by working for it (doing household chores) or doing some actual work (part-time, etc.)

I don't have an actual job where I get paid, so I can't get money that way.
I always help around the house though so usually if my mum can afford it she gives me money to do things. It's not a constant flow of money but if I want to go somewhere that might cost money I can ask my mum and, unless we don't have the money, she usuall gives me the money to go.
