Is $1 Too Little for a Tooth?

$5 per tooth. Yes, that is what parents in my community give per tooth in the guise of the Tooth Fairy. Isn’t $5 a little excessive? $5 x the number of teeth a child will lose x number of children in family = too much money.

We give $1 per tooth regardless of size. We gave $1 for first tooth and will give $1 for last tooth. I got $0.25. My husband cannot remember what he got.

I have a 7th grader who obviously does not believe in tooth fairy. I told her if she questioned the TF’s existence in front of her brother or sister she would not get any money. She goes with the plan and likes finding the dollar. I want to keep the charade going for my 5-year-old.

So, how much do you give per tooth?
