first timer is on a distinguished road

We had 50/50 access. At my house I gave our kids a monthly allowance that was based on their age (9 yrs old, get 9 dollars per month and put 10 percent in a savings jar). It was not based on chores or good behavior. If/when they wanted something that was more than their allowance, they had to save up for it (for ex going to movies). As teens, if their allowance was not enough, my response, get a job. Taught them the value of money for sure, they were not quick to waste their money either. And the allowance stops at 18. No clue what was done at their mother's house.
