When he keeps asking for things at the store, says Amy McCready, a Raleigh mom of two and owner of Positive Parenting Solutions.

McCready's been with us for the last three weeks, offering tips on everything from ending back talk and the bedtime blues to how to deal with praise junkies.

This week, it's allowance. How much should they earn? Should it be tied to household chores? McCready answers these questions and more.

Check this video for my interview with McCready. And learn all about the courses and programs she offers to parents on her website.

And thanks to Amy for spending the last four weeks with us here at Go Ask Mom.
