RSVP for the #FinanciallyFit Twitter Party Nov. 17 #ad

Just last week my five year old informed us that she thinks it’s time she started getting an allowance. I knew that day was coming but somehow I didn’t expect it quite so soon. And the truth is I have no idea what the going rate for a kid’s allowance is these days. I never received an allowance as a kid and even if I did that was a very long time ago. This will really date me but we’re talking about inflation of about 470% here. So, like any good parent does these days, I hit the internet to find answers. Apparently the rule of thumb these days is $1 per year of your child’s age per week. Five dollars a week for a kid in kindergarten seemed a little steep to me. What would she do with all that money? Do we make her save some of it? All of it? She’s a bright kid but exactly how do you talk finance with a five year old? We’ve had plenty of conversations about money in terms of mommy and daddy working hard for what we have and our family being much more fortunate than others but Molly is getting to be that age where the more practical conversations about money really need to happen.

Where do you start? I almost feel silly asking that. I have years of education and professional experience in accounting yet I’m not sure where to start talking to my kid about money. I could teach her how to do a balance sheet or what FIFO means but I’m pretty sure that wouldn’t be very helpful. Thankfully there are people that know where to start and are here to help.
