It says 4 -year-old get an average of $2.82, this amount is slowly growing and doubles by the time that kids turn 9. An average 14-year-old gets 8.79 a week.  Pocket money should allow the kid to save money for a special toy they like to buy, gifts for their sibling, spend on other family members, go out with their friends, buy a movie ticket for example.
