This is a spin off from another topic about what your kids spend money on.. (Even though it's suspected that topic was started by a marketing/research troll)..
DS1 is going to start school next year (kindy in NSW) and I've never given a thought to pocket money or spending money.
What is the standard practice? I actually really dislike the idea of giving him money but maybe that's because he's only just about to turn 5..? I know eventually he will need pocket money and its part of learning about the world..
How much do you give and from what age and are there any rules that you have about what it can be spent on?
