I'mm 66 ... never had an allowance and never gave one to any of my five children.
We're all working class hero's and by God proud of it.

If we asked father for an allowance, he would remind us that he paid a nickel for every row of corn we hoed. Sometime in the late 1960s, he generously raised it to a quarter.
When the growing season was over, he had a schedule for all sorts of other household chores, the best paying of which was $2 for mucking out a cow stall. If nobody volunteered, they got drafted. Draftees didn't get paid like volunteers and we knew it. Accordingly, the better paying jobs didn't go unfilled for very long.
