If you want kids to learn the value of money then yes of course they need to work for it.

The only exception would be if their "allowance" technically was also expected to be used by them to buy their milk at the school lunch program, or something like that. But usually those types of expenses are not considered "allowances".

Side: for

Yes because it is those kids that grow up thinking they can get whatever they want from mom and dad, because mom and dad did not make them work for an allowance. But instead gave the child an allowance for them to spend without making them work for anything.

That is what is wrong with children now a days. Parents are not as strict as they used to be. And parents give into their children way too much.

daughter: Mom get me that ring their

.

Mom: Ok you can get it.

.

what is wrong with that? O that is right not only did the daughter demand the mom to get her the ring. But the mother gave into the demand.

.

Me when i wanted something: Mom can i get that shirt.

.

Mom: No

.

Mom- when i back talked: ^mom slaps me^

Dad- when i got into trouble: Nathan get your ass in here what happened.

.

Me: blah blah blah blah......

.

Dad: go get me my belt.

.

Mom: your grounded from your room for the next week.

.

When i was grounded from my room i could not go into it unless i was going to bed. even then everything in the room was stripped besides my bed.

Parents do not do this stuff anymore because they are trying to be better than their parents.

.

Me: But did you not turn out ok?

.

Them: yes i turned out ok

.

Me: than why do you not treat your kids the same when they need punished.

.

Them: it is not nice to spank or yell at your kids

.

Me: What the hell is going to teach them not to do that again.

.

Them: talking to them

.

Me: talking does not do shit for me. Talking yeah that really works.

You aren't describing a flaw with making the kid work for the allowance, you are describing not using an allowance system.

daughter: Mom get me that ring their

.

Mom: Ok you can get it.

That's not an allowance system. Allowance is giving the kid money so they can choose what to buy if they can afford it.

Me: talking does not do shit for me. Talking yeah that really works.

What the hell does this have to do with allowance?

Side: against

I was describing what most parents are like today. I am not saying all parents are some parents actually use physical discipline on their kids still. But these kids that walk the streets, neighborhood like they own the place, kids these days think their shit smell good. because no one with authority over them has told them differently.

And sorry that was kinda hypocritical because i tell people to stay on topic a lot. And i went off topic.

And the daughter thing was referring to how parents give into their child's demands. I was not talking about an allowance.

Kids should work for their allowance because it allows them to really value hard work, and that not everything in life can be given by mommy and daddy. My mom and dad also disciplined me by grounding and spanking,and i turned out okay. They made me work when I wanted something, and they weren't all libtard about it. They made me realize alot of things about life, and i think that kids have grown dependant on mom and dad, and when they go into the real world, they are not ready for what it has in store for them.

I thought it was a good idea until I saw FromWithin post that he thought it was a good idea, so I am now against it because he is wrong about everything.

Allowance is supposed to teach you the value of money, not the value of working. Kids learn to work hard by seeing their parents working hard, not by doing chores.

Kids should work for their food and for a place to sleep. They do not deserve any allowance. Food and clothing and a roof over their head is more than they deserve. They should work for it.
