A Mother is making her 5 year-old daughter pay up! Essence Evans givers her daughter $7 allowance every week…BUT…her daughter pays “… $5 dollars back. $1 for rent $1 for water $1 for electricity $1 for cable and $1 for food,’ she said.”
‘You are brilliant for teaching this to your child in this way!’ Melissa Thomas wrote. ‘I have done similar with my kids, and I am now the proud parent of two young ladies who know and respect what they can earn more than something given to them.’
‘Well done!’ Maria Gahan-Broman added. ‘I did a similar version of this when my boys were little, they have turned out to be amazing men and fathers, great with money, taking care of their children, owning their home, paying mortgages down, staying out of debt.
‘Its YOUR job to raise your child,’ Stacey Branan Taylor commented. ‘Put the money in a savings account if you want, but no child should be made to feel that they should pay for what a parent should provide.’
