Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani from An Island Life. Over there in Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. So, for Aloha Friday, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Answer my question and put one of your own up on your blog. Link up and check out other blogs that participate at An Island Life.
I want to know what everyone thinks about allowances. At what age do you think kids should start getting an allowance? Or do you think they should just earn money based on household chores and what not?
This is a huge topic of conversation over here because Oscar has been straight up telling me, make that ordering me, to buy him a new Pokemon book and game he saw at Best Buy. We keep telling him that he can wait for his birthday or Christmas. Today I gave him the option to earn money towards the game. I paid him $2 to clean up after his little brother, picking up the mass chaos of toys that the baby had strewn about the room. I made sure that he knew that this only applied to cleaning up after others, not himself. Still feeling this whole chores for cash vs. allowance thing out. He is only 6.5 years old so I'm a little caught off guard here, lol!
