Synonyms of "Allowance" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre allowance e benefit (как *пособие*) ?
A: one common association we have with the word "allowance" is that it's what parents give to their kids. So like some money every month that they can spend or save. It might sound a little rude to say "I got a government allowance" because it sort of implies that you are like a child. Does that make sense?

I think benefit here works in a more neutral way
Q: Qual é a diferença entre allowance e pocket money ?
A: allowance is when u get the money for a whole month with rent and bills to give and pocket money is when u get money to use everyday
Q: Qual é a diferença entre allowance e pocket money ?
A: You get an allowance according to a schedule. Once a week for example. Pocket money is just a little money to cover small things. You could ask for pocket money when you need it.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre allowance e permission e authorization ?
A: 'Allowance' is the /amount/ of something that is permitted, especially within a set of regulations or for a specified purpose.

As for 'permission' and 'authorization,' I would say that 'authorization' has a slightly more official connotation? They're definitely synonyms, but their usage differs slightly.
For example, you could say that your mother gave you 'permission' to stay up late, but if you said that she gave you 'authorization' to stay up late that would be comical.
'Authorization' could, however, be used in a more official context. Here are some examples I found online:
"The nurse confirmed that my mother gave them authorization to talk to me about her condition."
"When I was in about 6th grade my mother gave the library authorization to let me check out almost whatever I wanted."
"The victim's mother reportedly gave police authorization to search the girl's cell phone."

I hope that clears it up somewhat? It's a little hard to explain.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre allowance e stipend ?
A: A stipend is an amount of money you get for school or work. It is associated with adults. But an allowance is money you get from your parents when you are a child.

A: If you are thanking someone for giving you permission to do something, you would say: "Thank you for allowing me to do this!"/"Thank you for letting me do this!"
