What's the going rate for a pre-teen's allowance?
What is the current going rate for a weekly allowance for a pre-teen child? $5/week? Less or more? Pay-per-chore? Other?
Our daughter's chores will include...
>Keeping her room and book library clean (or cleaning both at least once a week)
>Taking out the recycling as it fills (usually every 2-3 days)
>Family pet care (cleaning the cage weekly; daily feeding; bi-weekly bathing, etc.)
>Cleaning up toys in the backyard (weekly)
Thanks in advance for your suggestions on how much you think we should pay her for her allowance. We also welcome input on the chore list.
