Clever Kids Weekly Allowance System

This Might Be the Most Ingenious Way to Give Your Kids Allowance

Parents often struggle with whether or not they should give their kids an allowance. On the one hand, you want to teach them the importance of work ethic and the benefits of saving, but on the other, you don't want them too focused on money too early on in life.

"There are four sections: spend, save, donate, and invest," he says. Read more about how each category comes into play, and what it's taught him about giving back, in the post above.

Do you think you'll try this type of allowance with your kids?
