I remember getting $1 when I lost teeth.
I understand inflation, but $10 for a tooth? That's ridiculous.
No way im giving my kid $10 a tooth. He will be knocking his own teeth out and his brothers and sisters!
One of her kids has a tooth loose that isn't quite ready to come out. She said he's trying desperately to pull it out on his own to get the money. It's not the first he's lost, but for $5, I think I'd be trying the same thing.
$5 is a lot when you're young.
