What Do You Pay Your Kids For Allowance? – Daily Dilemma
The “Daily Dilemma” on the Sean and Richie Show is featured every weekday morning at 6:40am. We and the listeners take on someone’s problems and try to offer different perspectives. Now, these don’t have to be huge problems- it could just be something bothering you or a friend, or it could be some little thing you and another just can’t agree on. If you have a dilemma to share we’d love to hear it just e-mail us here at the show.
Here is today’s dilemma:
My kids recently came to me asking for a weekly allowance. They have daily chores that they HAVE to do, but recently asked me if I would give them am allowance for these chores. We compromised and I told them if they added more chores to their list I would give them $10 per week. My oldest complained, he said his friends get $20. That would be $40 a week for me total, I have 2 kids.
Can you reach out to your listeners and ask them, what is the going rate for normal household chores? I want to be fair to the kids without breaking my bank!
