I have a 7 and 8 year old. I do not loan them any money because when it comes time to pay up the amount always changes, they already paid, or they don’t figure on tax. Or whatever other excuse they can think of so I do not loan money. If we are at a store and there is a great sale, I buy it and if they have the money they can buy it from me when we get home other wise it is a gift saved for an occasion.
They have learned that if they have not saved enough money when that great secondhand item is for sale, Mom’s price might be higher because she had money saved up and didn’t waste it on candy. Cindy in AL
