How much pocket money do you get?

A recent study in the United Kingdom shows that young people are getting more and more pocket money.
A company took a survey of  more than 1,200 children aged between 8 and 15 years old, and asked them about their weekly allowances.
The survey found that the average kid in the UK gets about £6.50 each week, which is a 52p rise since last year.
The research also suggests boys are getting more money than girls.
After finding this article we wondered how much does the average New Zealand student get for their pocket money each week?
Let us know in the comment section how much your parents give you a week.

3. Andrew Shin says:

I think my parents are going crazy not giving any pocket money at all. They did not give me any since 10 years. But usually my dad put some money into my bank account, that’s like once in a month. I feel jealous because the United Kingdom gets so much money in a week. I just found out that 6.50 pounds is \$13.95 dollars in New Zealand.

19. Anonymous kiddiiiieeeeeeeeeeeee says:

I don’t get any pocket money. EVER!.But I wonder, how much money kids that have pocket money (for no reason!!) have? Work for your money cause kids that get pocket money, might not have much money when they are older, cause they never had to work for it. If you’re rich and you get pocket money you are probably not doing anything to earn it. Not getting pocket money gives me a hindsight of the world we’ll live in when we’re older, when we’re 30 we won’t still get pocket money!!!!

55. Fair deal says:

Many children do get money.
But, I think that children get an allowance about \$2.00 a week.
So, they would learn how to save more than spending them every time they get an allowance.
In this case, if children get \$2.00 dollars a week, they would learn a proper discipline to save up their allowance.
