I want to give my boys an allowance just once per month in their bank account and let them manage themselves. We live in a high cost coastal area in CA, and I am not sure what amount to give them. 16 yr does not drive because he is still not responsible but I want to get him going on managing money. He is trying to find job fo the summer but no luck yet. He washes my car for money sometimes, but I want to give a monthly amount so they learn how to budget.
