A question to the parents of Seven Forums :)

Hey guys. I was wondering, how many of you guys have kids? If so, how many do you have and how old are they?

Oh, and how much allowance do you give them per month? My parents only give me like $150 a month and I can barely afford to do much =/. I am 16 btw.

I'm 16 so I can't drive. Living in Sweden, cost is high. For instance, if I wanna get a Big Mac Meal at McDonalds, its 8 USD. Then I always need to save for a new PC because I usually buy 1 PC a year. Then I need to buy clothes, etc. So not much money is left xD.

I have 2 children. My daughter will be 6 in December and my son just turned 3 in July.

$150 a month for allowance seems like a ton to me. When I was a kid (1970's-1980's), I got something like $15 a week.

My kids are too young yet for an actual allowance, but I did start a bank account for each of them at birth and I put $100 into each kids account on a monthly basis....thus they have a fair amount there. However, this money is intended for things like school trips, band camps, and other things that would normally have to come out of my pocket later in life.

According to google 150 USD = 1 106 Swedish Kronor. Is it really THAT expensive over there that you blow over a grand in a month?

Oh and to answer the question, I got 5 a week until I was 15, and was then told to get a job or be poor.

Well, to be honest when I was a teenager there was no way that I would have been getting 1 new PC a year. Heck, it would have been like a new gaming console every 2 years at best. Even as an adult in my mid 30's, I don't do a PC a year for myself.

When i was a kid, most of my spending money came from mowing lawns and shoveling snow in the winters. Or working an actual job and earning a paycheck.

All of my meals would have come from my family. My spending money was for movies, music, games, toy's, hobbies, etc.

After my kids reached their teen years, they had to earn their spending money. There were no allowances. I did furnish them with a vehicle (shared) and I paid the insurance, maintenance and fuel.

I was just thinking about my parents
My dad was born in 1913 so he would have been 101 last month. My mom was born in 1914 and she would be 100 next month. Just wondering what they would be thinking about what is going on these days since they died quite a while ago. Anyone care to share?

Why do my parents like Norton so much?
I used to use it, now I've switched to other AV software. I felt it was slowing my computer down a lot. My parents used to use it too, and I convinced them to try another antivirus, and they also agreed that it affected their pc's performance. What do you think is so great about it; it seems to be...

Question about the forums...
This is a great forum... very well put together and the people here are very knowledgeable and helpful... I have looked around on the site for an answer to this but didn't notice any mention of it... I am just curious as to how the site is funded as there appears to be no advertising on it...

Parents are so cute!
Hi everyone. Anybody else here have a mom and dad that are, well, shall we say, just "not into" computers as much as the rest of us, so that when an ad for Windows 7 is shown on TV, they will literally ask, "So what IS Windows 7 anyways?" :D Hehehe. I love my parents dearly. But I think...
