We are at the point – maybe a little late, but better late than never – of giving Jaycie an allowance. We want to teach her about responsibility, savings, giving, etc. However, I also want to be realistic as she is only 9. I want her to have to pay for things so she will be motivated to save and we won’t have to build a Webkinz hotel adjacent to our house. I guess I am wondering if anyone has advice/ideas/guidance for us. What have you done that has worked or not worked? Thanks in advance.
