Gail’s kids’ allowance system worked for us!
Posted by admin | Filed under Uncategorized
I just want to let you know that your system for kids’ allowances works wonderfully for us. At first I thought it was a bit much to give the children their age amount per week but after awhile I saw how beneficial it was. I pay them every two weeks and although it took several months for them to realize that this was the only money they were receiving from me, they never ask me for money anymore. They’ve bought their own ipods, video games, candy and whatever other stuff they like or need to buy–even it takes MONTHS to save up for what they want. They look for deals and buy second hand–they’re learning the value of money. The advice I’d give to parents is to stick with it because it took a long time for this to work for us. You’re right — keep your hands out of your pockets, parents!
