Rob, do you think you'll keep doing it that way when they're teenagers? I used to be so jealous of my friends who would be able to just ask their parents for money to go to a movie or buy a record or whatever, because I always had to budget for it. I guess if you have plenty of other jobs available, it would be the same thing, but the older they get, the more they need/want.

I'm not sure, but we probably will. As they get older, there will be more jobs that they can do. Right now they can't mow the lawn or wash the car, but I'd probably pay them to do that when they're older. If they ask for money to go to a movie or something like that, I'd probably say sure, here is a list of things you can do to earn it.

Hmm... I never got paid for chores either. These philosophies are very interesting to read. I can see good lessons that can come from any of these techniques, even the one where they don't earn any money and have to ask for it. It's funny because in this thread I feel like sometimes when people comment, they are commenting in such a way that sounds like they think that they have the only right way to do these things. I don't think there is a right way or right answer that can be attributed to every person, family, and family situation or tithing situation. I guess I'm just glad for differences of opinion and different personalities and for the ability to choose for myself.

Yeah, each family needs to decide what works best for them. My method is the best one, but that's just my opinion. Of course, my opinion also happens to be the correct one. :)

Yup, parents have to do what's best for them as well as for their kids. I think one of my reasons for wanting to do regular allowances was so I knew exactly when I'd be expected to shell it out, and how much. I'm persnickety like that.

I echo what Rob said.



With the exception that we have differing methods and views, but mine is the right one. :D

The only part I know I am right about is that it's important to teach kids to pay tithing when they're young and teachable. Everything else is just my opinion. :-)

Especially given the topic of this thread, I think Jeff is right again.

He usually is; have you noticed? Somebody done raised that boy right.








(But my opinion is still the only one that's MORE correct than Rob's.)

Hahaha... love it. I do think it's important to teach about tithing when kids are young, too. And about money and money management. These are all very good things.
