      I generally give it to him in $5 amounts. His allowance decreases by $3 increments for each day he doesn’t go to school. Like if they have a teacher workday on Friday or Monday, then he only gets $12 that week.

      For the summer I give him $5 a week – if he keeps his room clean.

      Someone mentioned if they forgot their $$ or lunch… the school lunchroom will provide a lunch for your child at a reduced cost if they forget. Then they *do* have to pay them back.

      The lunch is usually something like a PB&J sandwich or something like that.

      I like that idea!
      With both of my kids going to be in Jr High next year – it will cost me $4 a day if they want to buy their lunch. Usually what happens is that at the beginning of the year, they will bring it – but by the 4th quarter, they are tired of it and want to buy it – at least on certain days.

      How do you keep your son from carrying all that money at one time? My problem is my son will walk around with $50 in his wallet (gift money and such) and I worry about him losing it or having it taken. He tells me to not worry (My son is also 12)
