Id love to hear ideas on how you pay your teenagers pocket money . As a child I used to work with my father cleaning doctors surgeries and helping him with his carpet cleaning business after school and on weekends. I usually got paid $3 a shift, but that was 30 years ago. My 14 year daughter helps out with dishes, washing, emptying bins etc…. but what should be done out of the goodness of the heart and what should be paid for and how much is a fair amount? How do others work out a fair amount. I was thinking $10 a week and tell her she has to bank $5 every week and the other $5 is to do as she wishes, wether that be to bank it as well or spend it.I am on a small income.
