i never got allowance, (what do u spend money on when ur 8?), but if i'm going to the mall, my mom will give me money. anyways, i think parents should stop giving allowances when their child gets a job

in Sweden, parents get about 135 USD/month for every child they have until the child is 15-16. Its their choice to give them to their children or not.
After that the child gets the money instead, simply by going to school. (but if he/she ditch school too much they get less)
When the child is 18-19 they don't get money anymore.

The allowance I got when I was small was a certain % of this money. When I was about 12 or so, I got all of it.

I work now and earn about 3000 USD/month so I make my own way in life. Its so much better

whew! still treating me like a kid..haha



lol, so opposite to my parents. I've always worked for my money. Even when I was small, I "earned" my money by cleaning my room, doing dishes, etc. They only gave me my allowance after I did things in the house just to train me not to be too dependent ^_^
and then now I never ask them for anything and they go "blah blah blah you're too independent blah blah... you don't need us anymore! uwah...blah blah blah

no allowances are for spoiled brats. i never had an allowance. you should have to ask in order to borrow money from your parents. if i ask then my parents will give me money, but i never ask. it's degrading.

once i get a job in the summer i want to pay them back. my dad says he won't accept the money though because he doesn't "need" it >_> i wanted to give him like $100 a month...

i save the money i get from chinese new year, my birthday, and christmas. i use it when i need to. i have $150 on me right now and over $1000 saved in the bank for my planned senior year shopping extravaganza
