How Much And When To Give Kids Allowance

Chris McIntyre 13

Do you give your kids an allowance?  Do you make them do chores or anything to earn the money?  When should you start giving kids an allowance? One Finance expert says that when your kids hit pre-school age is when you should start giving them an allowance. He advises giving a dollar per week per your child’s age. So if your child is 5, you give them an allowance of $5 per week. He also advises not to peg allowances to chores. He claims that the kids will stop doing housework when they have enough money. Instead he says it’s better to give the allowance anyway and just take away privileges when they don’t do their jobs around the house.  Screen time, fun outings and car keys are sometimes more valuable than money.

Women whose index finger was longer are likely to choose a job that was stereotypically female, like nursing or elementary education. Researchers say that a person’s finger makeup, known as the 2D:4D ratio, is caused by the amount of male testosterone a fetus is exposed to in the womb, which could explain the job choices. Yeah, and did you know that your middle finger can predict if you’ll get fired? Point it in the air by itself and find you’ll find out.
