15 cents. A dime and a nickel.
Three little piles of these two coins are what my brother, sister, and I found on Dad’s dresser every Sunday morning. The dime was to be put in our piggy banks, and the nickel was to be put in the church offering plate.
Allowances are heftier now than when Dad was doling out our weekly pay in the 1960s, but one thing hasn’t changed. Some parents are all-in when it comes to paying allowances, and others don’t agree at all. Who is right?
