Wow. We give our children almost $1,400 a year?!

This article discusses a study using many families and on average, they gave their child that amount, averaging $113 per month! Reasons vary from allowance to bribes. What do you think? Do you give your child(ren) cash?…

    I give a little bit here and there but nothing nearly as much as $113/month. I had no idea that parents actually feel pressured by their children or feel the pressure of the competition from other parents. I want to raise my daughter differently than how I was raised. My mom gave financial gifts and big gifts as an apology for working so much and not being around. I want to be an example to my daughter and other future kids that I have certain values about money budgeting and saving.
