It’s a struggle to know whether or not to give a child an allowance. Once you’ve decided to give an allowance, there are many more questions to answer…how much, how often, and how do we allow the child to spend this money? If your child is younger, the answer to these questions would probably look a lot different. However, if you have a tween, you may want to use these years as a training ground for budgeting. You are starting off small, and the benefits will bless you in the years to come!
