He's had the round for 18 months - just before he was 13. It's in my name so he gets £4 or £5 more. It's a couple of hours sorting out leaflets for papers on a Thursday and a couple of hours delivering on a Saturday.
For this he gets between £18 and £23.
We pay around £26 per month for his phone.
If he wasn't doing a paper round I suppose we would be giving him around £10 per week.
Is it unfair that he doesn't get this from us?
He blows all his paper money on nothing and if he got another £10 a week (which I think is far too much for a 14 year old in addition to the paper money) he would blow this as well.
direct debit into his bank? that kakes it a bit harder to spend and t easier to save it. out of sight out of mind. my dc get pocket nmoney this way....always a nice surprise for them to see how its mounted up....and might be an incentive to save?
£10 a week sounds a lot to me for a 14 year old excluding phone. Perhaps I'm very mean but my 13yo gets £15 a month and this has to cover his phone. In principle though, I can see why he would resent losing his pocket money because he has a job.
