I think this must be the longest I’ve not blogged for since I started blogging, I just haven’t felt like it so much lately so I thought I’d have myself a little blogging break. I’ve been enjoying time with my children which, ultimately, is what this blog’s all about and now, after a week off, I’m back, not exactly refreshed but I’m here anyway 😉 and I need some advice.
Our Chore Chart has been up and running for the last week and it’s been pretty successful so far. Pocket money day is now fast approaching – In fact, it’s been and gone once but we went out for the day at the weekend so we bribed the kids with treats instead of pocketmoney but this week I’m going to have to dig deep and pay up.
Now my question of the day is…. How much pocket money should I be giving them?
I was thinking £2.00 for Miss Frugal as she’s the grand old age of 8 and £1.00 for Master Frugal, who’s my baby at just 5 but I have no idea what the going rate is these days so I have no clue if that’s on the money (see what I did there lol). We pay for all their activities, I buy a few sweets with the weekly shop so I can make sure they don’t eat too many and I doubt I’ll be able to resist the odd treat or two for them so they don’t actually NEED pocketmoney but I do think they’re at the age where they should have it.
So help me out here, what do you pay your children and what do you do to encourage them to save?
