Any parent who leaves more than $5 under their child’s pillow in exchange for a tooth has lost their mind. According to a recent survey, parents are leaving an average of $3.70 under their children’s pillows in exchange for their teeth. That’s up 23% from last year and up 42% from two years ago.
Some parents are reportedly leaving as much as $50 under the pillow for each tooth.
If you’re leaving $50 under your child’s pillow for each tooth, someone should probably call DCF.
Frankly, I think that a dollar is more than sufficient, but I’m willing to accept $5 with the understanding that I still question your judgment.
