    Your mouth is full of money, but how much?

    Yesterday, I was listening to morning talk radio, and the disc jockey mentioned that, in a recent study, most American children, on average, get about $4.13 per tooth from the tooth fairy these days (it varies a bit depending on what part of the country you live in). So, my question, to those of you that have children, how much do you usually leave them, if anything, under their pillows? When I was a kid, all I got was twenty-five, maybe fifty, cents per tooth . . .

    I'll admit I held onto that tradition for far too long. Why do parents still lie to their kids with this stuff? It fucks up your psyche.

    I think it was $1 if mom or dad assisted you or $2 if you removed the tooth yourself. I don't think they ever fell out for me as a kid.

    This. Same with Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Sandman and countless other imaginary creatures. My parents told me very early that there was no "Baby Jesus" (He's who brings the gifts here in Colombia, we have no santa claus) and no tooth fairy and never got a cent for my teeth.

    I just swap the tooth for a kidney stone. The kids love playing with those.

    Remember in old cartoons where the character would bite gold coins? Good stuff.

    Half dollar or dollar coins, occasionally a two dollar bill.

    $4.13 seems a bit high. Kids might start knocking their own teeth out to cash them in.

    Same here for the $.25 when I was a kid, but it was only for the first few teeth.

    I think I'm on the "let's not" side of the magical lies debate these days. Aren't we sending our kids some mixed/confusing messages about manipulation and reality with this stuff?

    You know why people bit on gold coins?

    They wanted to loosen their teeth for the tooth fairy. So they can get more gold coins.

    Then they'd bite THOSE coins to knock out their teeth and before you know it, they'd get even MORE gold coins.

    So they don't show that in cartoons anymore because the FCC determined it was a "bad influence".

    Tell you kids it's a fairy tale, but give your kid a buck anyway. It'll be the secret you keep with your child you know is so much smarter than those idiots down the street.

    porn subject title if there was any. (mouth full of cash?)
    as others have said, zilch.
    regarding children, when my relatives complain of missing teeth and the LIES 'parents' foist upon them, best i can do is shrug and console them on reality.
    gifts are awarded based purely on stoic and composed behaviour.
    easy to accomplish when not my children....as i'm not high enough to go there.
    commercial days of all kinds blindly disregarded, enough entitled retards in the word as it is, not adding to the count.

    I wear dentures - the only things I got when I lost my teeth was the social stigma of being old beyond my years and the inability to eat corn on the cob

    I've seem kids get 20 for the first tooth and 5 after that. I got 50 cents as a kid. I like the gold coin idea. I have kids ask me if Santa is real, and these are 2nd graders. I tell them the people who say he's not real are just sour he doesn't give them anything. It's not my place to ruin that.

    But teeth grow back when they fall out. Mine fell out when I was a kid, and they all came back. I even got some additional ones. Must've been interest payment on the gold.

    Because they're trying to ensure your life has some magic in it before you grow up and learn that there is no magic, life is just a series of kicks to the face and genitals, and one day we will all die

    You won't be going anywhere... you won't even know you're gone.

    If the tooth fairy fucked up your psyche you have bigger problems.

    My kids get $1.

    A bunch of forty-something video-gaming nerds that are only keyboard commandos and mostly sedate pussies any other hour of the day cannot really be all that aggressive, can they? (My self included.)

    I love the lads here, this forum in general, and the mentality but lets not kid ourselves about this being some sort of dark web tough corner of the world.
