I use to get a dime under my pillow, wrapped in a Kleenex. My kids....hmmm, I'll have to ask them. I don't remember what the tooth fairy gave them...probably a dime too, maybe a quarter. It's suppose to be a little token, isn't it? Just something fun? Or has it come to expectations of a 401K plan these days?

There's a tooth fairy calculator app to tell you how much you should give your kid per tooth according to your gender, age, state, and income level. It's gives you the average that your peers pay their children.

a tooth fairy app?!?! your kidding me right?

My guys will get a buck or two once they start losing them.

Im so not ready for them to start losing teeth LOL

ETA: I found a website that works off the app.
http://www.practicalmoneyskills.com/...toothfairy.php

Apparently Jeremy if he made 75k a year should pay 3.00
Me at 25K should give 5.

Thats our ages, high school and those income limits. WITH college its less per tooth and graduate school even less.

How does THAT add up? You make less but you pay more?!

For 24 under 25 k and high school in NY I got 3 but the same person in GA paid 5.

BUT 30, GS, 75k gives 2 dollars.

Explain that one.

We have less but should pay more per tooth according to that.

Lol, I know. I got a kick out of it. Didn't make any sense to me either. I just heard about it recently and this thread reminded me of it. She asked how much she should pay so I thought I'd offer it up, lol. It says we should do $3. The older you get the cheaper it seems to get.
