There are as many different theories on kids and pocket money as there are leaves on a tree.
(Ok perhaps not quite that many but you get the idea)
Some believe you should link chores to pocket money so that kids develop a good work ethic early and learn that ‘Money doesn’t grow on trees’. The value of money is certainly an important lesson for children to learn, but what about all those things we have to do as adults that we don’t get paid for? How do we teach our children not to expect pocket money for every task they do, at the same time avoiding the slippery slope into the underworld of bribery to get desired behaviours?
