Allowances and Finances

Recently I read different ways parents teach their children the value of money. Some give their children a weekly allowance, some give them a monthly allowance, some just give them money when needed. Since the idea behind it all is to teach children the value of money, I became curious as to how the parents of these children were taught by their parents and how are they are today at handling finances.

Allowance or No Allowance?

My husband & I differ in opinion when it comes to allowance or 'incentives' for our daughter. She is almost 5, and I have had a 'reward/star' responsibility chart for her, since she was about 4.

What Do to About Job

I have been back to work full-time now for about 1 1/2 years and I really hate it. I got a new manager about 4 months ago and she is just unbearable. She is completely opposite then me - very confrontational and rude. My heart just isn't in my work at all. I don't want to be there as it is and now I have to put up with her micro-managing. I make great money which is the worst part of all! My husband won't let me quit because his business is in jeopardy right now. He owns his own construction business and of course it has completely...
