    Our helper will get her 13th month - half at Christmas and half at CNY. As she has only been with us a few months it will be pro-rata this year. I also purchased her a DVD and gave it as an early gift.

    As a side - do you give money for your helper's child for their birthday and/or Christmas?

    Thanks.

    as i said, we've never paid a 13th month. i've never received it and i've been here for coming up to 15 years. our helper will probably get $500 at xmas, and same at CNY. we have given other gifts at xmas (including a dvd player).

    we've never given anything for our helper's child. (he's now in university).

    We usually buy a very small something for our helpers daughter (last year it was lots of little hair clips and minnie mouse ears). She has a new baby so will get something little for her also.
