    $100!?!

    I thought we were pushing it with $4 (usually 2x$2)

    $100 is ludicrous. I struggle to understand how anyone could go that far.

    $100 is excessive. I know a few ppl that have given $100/$50 for 1st lost tooth. So not unheard of. But i think the parents must do it as a way of showing off or something, surely a young kid would be over the moon and filled with excitement over $1. We did $10 for 1st tooth, mainly because I had no change and he lost it just before bed so no time not get change, lol.

    Yep, this is why DS gor $10 for his first tooth so had to do the same for my DDs when it was their turn. But after that it's $1 per tooth, $2 per molar. Not that I think any of my kids believe in the tooth fairy but I explain that their are a few different tooth fairies doing the rounds and they may have different going rates and sometimes some parents might add extra depending on their family tradition. And depending on condition on said tooth. DS got only 50c for the tooth he had to had pulled out - incentive for better brushing in future!
