DS is 8 and we are starting to discuss pocket money and spending.
Currently also looking into a child account/card with parental controls as currently DS seems to think the money on the screen is a magical entity that is always there 😂
Me and DP would like a bit of advice from the wise collective of mumsnet to figure out how we are going to work it so would love to ask a few questions and get some insight if that's ok?
- how much pocket money do your DC/s get or got at different ages
- what are the general rules about spending their own money
- what are the rules about any monetary gifts £10 and over from family members (DCs have a couple of DGMs who like to gift 10-20 each from time to time)
