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!

What do you think? How much do you pay your kids? What sort of chores do they have to do? Comment on it at the bottom of this page!
