I am a firm believer that kids should be taught the value of the almighty dollar. I think too often in today’s time, parents hand out money but miss the chance to teach their kids a lesson.
Now, before I go any further, please understand. I am not saying you cannot splurge on your child. I am guilty of this too! I don’t think there is anything wrong with rewarding your kids. All I’m simply trying to say is – many times we, as parents, pay for that toy or candy bar in the store just to get five minutes of peace and quiet. Then, what happens? You feel guilty that you rewarded your kid, and they didn’t really do anything to deserve it.
