Don’t Tie My Allowance to Chores or Achievements

(from Chapter 1)

Should your allowance depend on work around the house or schoolwork? No!

  • An allowance is meant to teach you how to handle money.
  • You do chores because you are part of the family.
  • Doing well in school, music or sports is about building your confidence and talents. It’s not about getting more money – SORRY!
