My kids don't get an allowance per se. We expect them to do chores and they do. When they go somewhere we gave them money.
They also work on the farm ... and their grandfather pays them as they were truly working for him so they used that money for things too.
But we have no "set amount".
Also, the oldest is now in college ... the 2nd is in 9th grade. The oldest never had a true job in high school as he really was involved in sports and academics so a schedule was impossible. Summers he spent on the farm ... the 2nd son will be doing the same thing.
