Whether to give pocket money to preschoolers, preschoolers

When my daughter was four years old, I began to teach her to count. Walking on the street, we counted the trees, in the stairwell we counted the number of steps, the houses were replaced by parts from the designer. Every day the numbers and numbers are more interested in the curious restless.

If I managed to teach a child an elementary bill, I was able to quickly, then it was more difficult with questions that related to money. For example, my daughter could not understand why in public transport I give the driver not one, but two coins. Or why the driver also gives us money (change)?

In the store, the daughter could not understand why, having bought two units (for example, milk and bread), I give the seller only one bill? After all, it is necessary to give two! It is with these questions that a new, more adult stage in the life of a small child began. One day she asked if she could take some brilliant coins to herself. Naturally, small coins were not a pity to me.

Every evening, my daughter recounted her savings and answered the question: what would she like to buy for them? She answered: Nothing, I collect little yellow coins for my mother, and little white ones – for my father. When you have no money, I will give it to you.

Since then, more than six months have passed. You will not believe it, but not a single coin from the daughter’s piggy bank has been spent. Is that my husband and I occasionally can take a few, if needed trifle. My daughter is not greedy, but she is not in a hurry to spend her savings. Says all mom and dad. However, in the case when I refuse to buy her something in the store, my daughter proudly says that she has her money and she will spend it.

Did I do the right thing by starting to give my daughter pocket money? I think yes. Due to this, the baby started counting better and in her five years she, counting her money, can already count this or that amount. In addition, my husband and I regularly tell her about the value of money, about how hard it is to earn them, and why they should be protected without wasting it.

How much money should a child have?

I don’t give money to the child too often and never set the conditions, because I don’t want my daughter to help / clean / brush her teeth just to get the cherished coin. I don’t also give large bills, basically only change in the form of small change is sent to the pocket of the daughter, 10-25 kopecks. My daughter knows that if you collect coins for a long time, you can buy a good thing. Therefore, she treats her savings very carefully.

In order for the money not to be scattered and not lost, my daughter and I went to the store and bought a large piggy bank and a small wallet. After all, everyone knows how little kids love to imitate adults. In the wallet there are always some coins with which the baby occasionally helps me to pay at the checkout, while receiving great pleasure.

Often I hear that you cannot give pocket money to children. But it still seems to me that a small amount of personal savings will not harm a preschooler.
