We have a problem. My son is at that stage where when I tell him to do something there has to be a monetary exchange discussion. No sir.
I’ve spoken on this before regarding a lot of us being able to provide things for our children that we didn’t have and them having a sense of entitlement. Since when do I need to pay you to clean your room, but the part that is rattling my nerves is the shade he throws when I inform him there will be no payment made for things that should be done.
So the Mr. thinks an allowance should be given. Sort of a real life show that when you work you earn money that you need to save…blah, blah, blah. I believe in allowance, I do. But I’m just not sure for what. I don’t think you should be paid for doing chores or doing well in school.
Just being curious, I asked him what would he buy with his allowance…THIS
Poor thing. How much work would that entail.
What’s your take. Did you receive an allowance as a child? Do you pay out an allowance? If so, how much and for what?
