I am looking for some advice on giving children allowances. My daughter is almost 8 and thinks that atm machines just *give* you money and that food is *free* if you get it at the drive thru. quite disturbing!
we obviously need to teach her how money works in addition to the value of a dollar!! so, i was wondering how other families handle allowances with kids this age. i don’t want to spoil her, but i want to give her enough so that she has some money to “manage”. how much would you suggest? would you tie it in to chores?
what has worked for your families?
