After reading the article about the Billionaress, it reminded me that I read another article about childrens allowances, and in some very privileged families in London, the children get over £100 a week!!!!! I think that this is ridiculous, I have three children the eldest is 14,then comes 11, and then a younger one of 6 yrs.Living in London, two of them have an Oyster Card, and don't pay for transport, so their allowance is just for themselves. The 14 yr old gets £3.50, and the 11 yr old gets £3.00, the younger one will start to get £1.00 soon.I do get reminded to give them their pocket money, as I do forget, but I tell my kids to remind me too, as their pocket money is in my eyes the beginnings of learning about their money, and saving so that they can buy what they want, and to appreciate waiting to get something that needs to be saved up for. Don't get me wrong, I could give them a little more each, and probably double to what they get. If they do chores or help me with my business, they get to earn some more money too. I just can't relate to £100.00 a week, and I am curious to hear what other families give to their kids????? Am I out of touch to give them this amount, I would welcome to hear what other mums are doing.
