Quoting ~Nimlorel~:" How much do/did you give your 4 yr for allowance? Did you give it to them monthly or weekly? Did you ... [snip!] ... daughter more responsibility with her money, (up until now she just gets our pocket change) I just don't know where to start."We just started doing a CHORE CHART, four different chores (very easy ones) and seven days of each, she gets a sticker when she does them and when the whole sheet is full (one week) she gets 75 cents each line which is 3.00 BUT 50 cents has to go to a "charity" (we have sponsor kids so she uses that money to buy stickers and stuff for them). The rest of the money we keep in a piggy bank and she can either spend it on whatever she wants or save up for something more expensive. It has worked well with her understanding that you can't just buy everything out there and saving up, I have been most impressed with how she enjoys buying for "charity". Also we are relaxed about the chores, if she is just really not into that day I say it's fine but you know it will take longer to make money and buy that toy.
