Quoting Kelly&Coralie:" Cora doesn't quite get the idea yet. I'm working on it with her though"Yea. Well, Kayleigh was kind of thrust into it by her choice to throw her lamp across the room, lol. Not so sure we'd have started it yet if that hadn't happened....but she seems to have really done a great job at comprehending what it all means. We use little money slips, and they go into a mason jar. She doesn't do the extra chores unless she has something in mind that she wants. She wants that train ride like I said, so yesterday she swept the front porch earned her .75 cents
Quoting *Cade*Mak*Col*:" Same here. I paid for my college and I bought my car. I think I'll have my kids get school loans and ... [snip!] ... then I will pay their loans off for them. I'd hate to pay for their college abs have them be partying and failing classes!"
Quoting **Hanna**:" <blockquote><b>Quoting *Cade*Mak*Col*:</b>" My husbands GI bill and the multiple ... [snip!] ... me. And they never bought me a car. Did it myself. I plan on saving for my kiddos. Give them a little better than what I had."
Quoting Momma2Nico&Noah:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Fairy [God] Mother ®:</b>" <blockquote><b>Quoting ... [snip!] ... match whatever they earn/save. Like if they save up a thousand dollars for a car, you'll put in a thousand too. That's my plan."
Quoting Kelly&Coralie:" Just a question, but how does buying your kid a car or paying off thier loans teach them the value of ... [snip!] ... a car or gone to college cause I couldn't afford it and my mom wouldn't do either for me. Nor would I have expected her too)"I have no problem matching my kids for a car, give them some motivation to earn the money...etc. They'll be paying (at least part of the way) for insurance/gas/etc. It will be dependent upon many factors, including their overall behavior/attitudes.

Quoting Colt's mommy:" Well, my parents bought my first 3 cars, and paid for my college and now my DH and I are completely ... [snip!] ... even through high school/college. Of course, every child is different and we will change plans accordingly if we see fit. "Definitely.
Quoting the grace life:" Definitely. "
