When you were younger did you get an allowance from your parents? If so how much money did they give you? How many times a month did you get an allowance? What did you have to do to get this allowance?
No, my dad didnt believe in giving someone (even his own blood) money for just existing. It was one of his "lessons on life" that nothing is free and that the fruits of a hard days work will outweigh a handout any day. Soooo neither me nor my siblings got a straight up allowance.
Nowadays though he's not such a hardass and lets my younger siblings get away with general murder.
I didnt really get an allowance. I got 10 bucks a week for lunch money and if I packed my lunch versus buying it at school then I got to keep the money, so that kinda worked as my allowance if I wanted it to.
I get 10 dollars a week for nothing, but it means that I don't get paid when I do yard work or something. So I do work for it, kind of. And if I need extra money, I either save up or sell off my possessions. At the moment, I have someone lined up to buy my paintball gun. Complete with accessories!
