Being well aware of this topic. I do think kids should get allowances, simply because they do have to work for them a majority of the time. I can't remember a single time when my parents just handed me money. I had to work for it every single time. SO that just makes your part of your argument irrelevant when you say "They wouldn't have to work for it." That is not a true statement and is therefor false. I think that they should get allowances based upon whether their parents think they deserve it or not.
