  1. Hi Ria, nice post. I like share, save and spend as a philosophy. I particularly like the parenting question, “what will you do?” We’re not quite at allowance with BigBoy, but we’re getting close. I saw this post in the WSJ ( a while a go. I thought you and the readers may find it interesting as well.

    Keep up the good work!

  2. Jen, thanks for sharing that article. Great tips for sure! We’ve got allowance in our house and it makes for great teaching moments. My kids have loaned money to each other and had to figure out how to pay each other back. We have the share, save and spend jars too.
