Thomas Cox As long as they earn it.
Bryon Reavis Yes..teaches work and earn habits.
Shawn KingbirdIf the kids do stuff around the house without asking they get allowance. Prove to me you deserve it. Things in life are not free. Learn early the hard work.
James Stuart Linnell Yes but only for things out side of the chores that are expected to be done while being an effective member of the house hold.
