I'm 14 and I get £10 a week and then whenever I want something I get the money for it from my dad, and I think that this is pretty fair. X

The pocket money depends upon how much the parents would afford it. Rich families always offer their kids more pocket money than a middle class or a poor family.

Another factor is the school. If your kid is studying in a school where eating things are costly then you have to offer more money to the kid.

In my opinion an average 14 year old kid takes half a dollar in Asia. Definitely it can be more in Europe and America.

At 14 years of age I would base it own how much help this child is around the house. No help no money. Lots of telling them over and over again to do something less money. There is a lifes lesson here that your child needs to learn. Money doesn't come without some kind of something on there part. You work, you pay house payment, no work, no house payment, no house to live in.

Depends on responsibility level and chore schedule and lip received, from $5- $20. If they are already getting an allowance, subtract $'s for chores not done or reduce amount for having to nag/listen to complaints or whining.

Well I am 14 and live in the U.S, I don't get any allowance, b/c I get sent to private school rather than public, although I help my parents at home, and I do no complain.

I read somewhere it should be a dollar a year, once a week. thus 14 dollars a week. You know what, you know what's reasonable for your family, considering resources, and most importantly was it earned. I am a firm believer in giving them a fair amount for the work accomplished, that way you are preparing them for the way things will be as adults, trust me if I half do my jobs, I don't get paid, and I probably loose my job, right? Your really not doing them any favors, by caving in to them. If later in the week they want more money, if you can, find a chore/chores to do, ex. cleaning the garage, helping grandma move furniture, ect.ect. It's called teaching them work ethic. You may wonder is this approach to stern? The answer is, anything you can do to prepare them for the real world, will only help them adjust to life as an adult. Don't get me wrong, kids need to be kids independent of a lot of responsibility, trust me though they crave stability, and some guidelines, even if they don't realize it yet. Remember too, the lessons you teach your children will be carried on from generation to generation. With kids, the best advice I ever heard is pick your battles. Good fortune

Nothing - I'm 14-years old and I don't get pocket money. I don't want it because I just don't need the money (so will just blow it) and my parents could spend it on useful things. If ever I want anything, I simply ask my parents for it and as long as it's realistic, they generally say yes. My parents always give me money for credit.
As for chores? I do a lot of them as well - it's called contributing to the household. You shouldn't be paid for it. Grades? I got straight A's last month. It's your education - why should you get rewarded for it? Do they get rewarded for work? Nope. You should get good grades anyway.

Well a soda a day is a horrible habbit. You want to go shopping? Ok well lets go together. The malls get kids in trouble. Window shopping turns to shoplifting. Sodas lead to rotten teeth and fat guts. What does a 14 year old need money for? Oh nothing just a want. If lunch is purchased at school(3$) and did after school activities(3$food and beverage)and rode the city bus (1.50 one way)  that's 9$ a day. You could probably just get them what they need food, drink extra for after activities and a bus pass.  Its tough to say life is based on circumstance.

It all depends on how much your parents can afford. When my mom could afford to she did give me some money, not a lot. I learned how to make my money last when I was little. I had two paper routes I worked with my brother when I was 14.

Well, it depends on what they are going to spend it on. If its for lunch at school, I would say about 30 dollars a week for lunch, but if its just like an allowance I would say 15-20 dollars a week.

I'm 14 and live in the UK. I come from an upper middle class family and don't get actual scheduled pocket money but, my dad does give me £200 every time I go shopping which is usually around 3 times a month. It's usually the same with my friends, no pocket money - just money in hand when we go shopping.
thanked the writer.
