Did you receive an allowance when you were a child or teenager?
Kind of - my dad had a business - we got "paid" through the business. I got paid to sit on a stool and talk to daddy an awful lot - LOL
Yes, it fluctuated with dad's job, chores, siblings, etc. though. But that only makes sense. I was still happy that I got any.
Until I was sixteen, at which point I was expected to get a job.
We - my sister and I - were not allowed to get real jobs while school was in session. We were to concentrate on school and participate in extra curriculars - school was our job
Yes. It's a good idea.
