When you were a child, did you receive "an allowance"?


What did you take away from this experience? Do you believe that 'working with' an allowance as a child was helpful to managing your finances as an adult? How was it helpful, or not helpful?

    Thanks Lisa! I appreciate your response. As an adult, do you generally work hard with an expectation of being compensated for the effort or are you motivated to work hard for internal rewards? (i.e.,sense of personal accomplisment, pleasure, etc?)

    Thanks Ken. Do you envision children without opportunity to work for pay as being handicapped as adults aspiring to financial success? How do you think this paradigm might affect the economy of a country?

    Thank you for sharing some interesting thoughts, SheaLightsey. Did you find that your parents' (sometimes) openness to request and negotiation as a child equipped you to get your needs met in healthy ways as an adult?

    Thanks Cecelia for the chuckle! If you don't mind sharing, do you see differences in how the sense "unfairness" of this exchange has affected your adult perception of work and your sister's adult work experiences?
