Apparently the Tooth Fairy isn't digging as deep into her pockets these days.
A survey by San Francisco-based Visa Inc.suggests U.S. kids are receiving an average $2.60 per tooth from the Tooth Fairy, down from $3 last year.
Visa said the amount of money left by the Tooth Fairy decreased in most U.S. regions, except western states, where the average amount increased from $2.70 to $2.80. Eastern states marked the largest decrease in per-tooth payouts, down from $3.40 to $2.10.
"Visa encourages parents to use the Tooth Fairy's visit as an opportunity to have the 'money conversation' with their children," the company said. "Even simple steps like asking kids what they plan to do with the money and encouraging them to save for a long-term goal can help instill valuable money management lessons that can last a lifetime."
What do you think is a reasonable amount of money from the Tooth Fairy? Leave your comments below
