Pocket money

According to my son, most children in his year get pocket money. He doesn't

So, it made me think, at what age do kids start getting pocket money?

And how much do they get?

And what do they do for it?

When we were growing up, we only got pocket money if we did something, and I do agree with this. We had chores we had to do to earn money (just like in life..)

But, S can't even put dirty clothes in the washing basket..

A recent article in the Telegraph saying that children should earn their money.

So, wondering if I should set certain jobs for him every week to earn money..

But, if i did, what would they be? and how much to give him.

Do you give your children pocket money? if so how much and do they need to do anything?

Would love to hear your thoughts.
