Post subject: Pocket money
Anyone started on pocket money yet? Just curious how youve done it. My daughter (4) gets each week a Euro for each year. We used to struggle because she wanted everything. Now she has to save her money to get the bigger things. Still its not easy. The other day we went to Smiths and she asked me on everything what price it is and she clearly hadnt got the money. Hopefully, she learns soon enough. How early would you start or on how much (i know it would be Sterling)?

I wouldnt give her too much unless you know she appreciates the value of money. I know plenty of kids who expect loads lol

My oh and I tend to give Jessica the odd change which she always puts in her money box. When she has enough we take her to get some sweets. Once we had to buy bread to feed the ducks Confused

Well, she should be able to know whats number 4 and how much the things costs she wants. Id say it just takes a little time for her to get used to it. At least she knows ones the money is gone, she has to wait until she finished school for that week. Sow e are getting there Smile

haven't really thought about it yet tbh - I suppose I doubt I'll do it until he's at school at least. Not sure really!! There's arguments for both sides.

I tell my daughter to ask Santa. When she asked me for some things earlier this year, I told her money doesn't grow on trees, she told me to get new seeds lol. Now she tells me to go to the bank.

If my daughter wants things (just small bits and bobs, Kitty in my pocket 2.99) then she has to earn stars on a chart for good behaviour, then gets a treat. It works for us, don't know what i'd do if she was an angel though.
