I don't disagree Molly but I do think kids can learn from money gifted to them too. Since they were toddlers my kids have accompanied me to the bank and have been taught to deposit at least a portion of all money they receive (Communion, Birthdays).  Even with DD1's job she puts a portion in the account she has at the bank and keeps some, Hmmm, I wonder where that got learned (we'll see if her sister follows in the same footsteps!), Lol.

So you are saying that Jams is genuine in her asking that question of people she routinely attacks?

Not true.

You don't understand the meaning of a gift and you believe gifts are only limited to the parents?

I wonder, when you are "SMH" in all caps like that, is it really as violent as it reads?  You know, the all caps is shouting and all that.

You're right, Molly. I don't want a job. I'd like a career. 

I have work to keep me busy in the meantime.

You mean school?

Oh I don't disagree that they can learn from money given to them. My point was that an allowance given by a parent is STILL the parents money given. They might have earned it at home but when you look at the big picture, YOU are still paying for what they purchase with that money.

If the grandparent gives the kid money for his birthday, it is no longer the grandparent's money, but the kid's money.  If the parent give the kid allowance, or pays him for doing a chore, it's still the parent's money.   At least according to Molly.

Jamblessedthree seems to be going by gangsta logic, as expressed by Omar Little.  "Money ain't got no owners.  Only spenders."
