What do you think about the idea of an allowance?
No to an allowance because money should be earned and not “given.”
No to an allowance because chores should be freely done as part of being a family in which everyone helps out.
Yes to an allowance because children need to learn how to handle money.
Yes to an allowance because children need to understand more about what it means to “earn” money.
I think an allowance is a good way to teach children the value of money especially at the Dollar Tree. I had several students who bought me Christmas gifts from the Dollar Tree and proudly told me how they used their own money. ❤
