Pocket money

Currently we are trying to decide how much pocket money to give our children and what if anything they are expected to do to get it.My suggestion is to let them earn extra by doing odd jobs that we don’t expect them to usually do for example cleaning the car occasionally..Keeping their rooms tidy is something we’d expect/hope to be done as is generally good behaviour.Also how often should they get pocket money and how will it be paid.I’d like to open a bank account for my eldest and start putting money into it for him on a regular basis.That way any large things he wants during the year he can save up for.I don’t want my children to expect to get something for nothing or to be spoilt.I’d like to know how others deal with pocket money.
