Is the Tooth Fairy Paying Too Much?

Are you sticking too much cash under your kid's pillow when he or she loses a tooth? It used to be that small change or maybe a buck was the norm. But these days, children are expecting cold, hard cash for those missing teeth.

The national average that little kids get when they lose a tooth is $3.70. Compare that to New York City, where the going rate is an average of $13.25. It's $9.69 in Los Angeles, $5.85 in Chicago and $2.83 in the Midwest.

So tell your kids that if they want to cash in when the tooth fairy comes, they better pack up and head to NYC.

How much money to you give your child when he or she loses a tooth? Tell us in the comments section.
