Reply to Allowance for a 6 year old??

Highly agree with Alexis......it’s never too early to teach kids about finance and money.....it’s important for them to see how much stuff actually costs and to not just assume everything and anything can be had because mommy or daddy has a “magic” plastic card (my nephew actually calls it that 🤯). You could definitely even do “pretend” money and when she has enough for the actual baby alive items you trade in her “cash” for the real deal. That way as her interests change you don’t have to come up with a whole new reward system. I was that weird kid that liked saving, even as a little kid....so it was cool to me to see my little allowances add up. Definitely made me realize that I couldn’t have both big things and waste my money on candy or silly little “in the moment” stuff. My two year old gets an actual allowance when he helps out, directly into a little piggy bank.....he obviously doesn’t have any idea what it is yet, but when he’s older he’ll get it to make his own choices, good and bad. :)
