One way you can tell your kids are growing up is when their spending outpaces their allowance. My 15 year old daughter goes to the occasional movie or visits a convenience store with her friends to buy snacks, but her passion is shopping for new clothes. No allowance within the realm of reason can fund a teenage girl’s desire for new clothes. I was pleasantly surprised when my daughter stated she needed a job. This shows that she understands the concept of having to work to earn the cash needed to buy the things she wants in life. The problem is, there aren’t a lot of places that hire 15 year olds. But, we’re on the hunt, and with it will come new opportunities to teach my daughter about financial responsibility!
