How much cash do you give your children in pocket money per week?

Just how much pocket money should you give to your children each week? As this is the question that many parents ask themselves, we thought it would be a good idea to make it the focus of our March poll.

11% of those who answered this month said that they gave their children less than £2.50 in pocket money per week.

While 18% of participants told us that they hand between £2.50 and £5 over to their kids, a further 15% give between £5 and £10.

An especially generous 39% of those who responded give more than £10 to their children each week.

However, 17% said that they don’t give any pocket money to their children.
