Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I have a 13 year old -- allowance amount and method?

0 answers
Has anyone tried the new Amazon Allowance program as an alternate to giving cash for weekly/monthly chores? What amount helps promote good behavior but doesn't spoil? How much do you think is reasonable for a 13 year old who does well in school to earn? It says that the child must be at least 13 and have "parental involvement" in the account, so that is good. Has anyone tried it? Do you know if you have final approval before purchases occur?
