    I surely did not!  All the money I earned was from working.

    No. My father used borrow money from me.

    No allowance. But they did give me enough money for actual needs.

    No I never got an allowance, I had to work and earn money.  I did well for myself being the neighborhood babysitter.

    No allowance; even pocket money was not allowed. All our needs were met by our parents.There was not much of luxury. It was simple life..

    Sometimes I did but sometimes I would just not get in trouble for doing my chores.

    I got an allowance when I had good grades and that was about it.  My mother was not going to pay me for doing what needed to be done, only for what I was going to use when I got older, and an education is indeed worth paying for!
