Pocket money for P6

How much pocket money would you give a Primary 6 kid and a Sec 1 student? Food is not cheap in school tuckshops anymore! Then there's stationery, soccer cards, after school outings at McDonald's.... #pocketmoney #allowance #teens

Have a friend whose son started secondary 1 this year. She gives him $45 every week and he is supposed to manage his own spending. If there is a need to pay for extra stuff for school (class fees, buying books for school, going on school trips etc) he can ask from my friend. Otherwise, going out with friends will have to come from his own savings and his money management skills.
