How much did you get for lost teeth as opposed to what your kids get now?

I got maybe a quarter for a tooth, or a dollar or two if I had to have a permanent one pulled by the dentist. DD got a couple dollars for her first tooth and has lost a few more since then, but hasn't asked about the tooth fairy and I haven't reminded her.

I got a dollar and I'll probably give a dollar to my kids.

This question makes me laugh since I got nothing. My parents didn't believe in the tooth fairy, I guess. They let me pick up coins off the floors and couch, and I stashed my savings away in a piggy bank. That's all I got...and I had to work for it. LOL. I ended up saving $100 by my 5th birthday.

This is a major issue in our house. My kids get $1. DH thinks that's WAY too much. He got $0.10 per tooth in the 1960s but his parents also put potatoes in his stocking at Christmas. They weren't poor, just cheap. I got a quarter in the 1980s which, given inflation, was worth a little under a dollar (http://data.bls.gov/cgi-bin/cpicalc.pl).

I always got 50c to a dollar. When ds lost his first tooth my dh asked his friend at work how much he gives his kids and he told him $10 a tooth! We ended up doing $5 a tooth, mainly because that's what i had in my wallet at the time lol

My boys haven't lost any teeth yet, but for me and my sister when we lost our first and last tooth we got $5, every other tooth we got $1!

Re: How much did you get for lost teeth as opposed to what your kids get now?

$1 is what I used to get and what we give our daughter. Daddy is the tooth fairy and though and once he forgot and the next night he had no change so she got $10! I was in shock but it was kind of funny. Sometimes the tooth fairy remembers to give the $1 but forgets to take the tooth haha we are a work in progress..

I'd been wondering what the norm is now... I'm pretty sure I got a quarter (but 50 cents if it was a molar!). Perhaps I'll double that when the tooth fairy starts hanging around our house in a year or so.
