Time to try a new allowance strategy?
Lynne Finch, author of the award-winning book
The No-Cash Allowance will present two different workshops Saturday, November 5.
Fox Cities Money Conference
Fox Valley Technical College, Appleton, WI
How Much Allowance Should I Give My Child?
Finch says this is the most common question parents ask. To answer this, in the 10:45 a.m. workshop parents will look at the benefits of kids having an allowance. They will fill out a worksheet to help them calculate an allowance for their child. In addition, parents will learn how to set up a system that will teach their kids good money management skills.
Finch suggests parents teach their kids to manage money as a number. Consequently, by giving kids control over their own written account they learn how each money decision affects their bottom line.
What’s in Your Wallet
The second workshop at 11:45 a.m. will focus on using cashless spending methods in helping consumers decide what cards are best for their needs. The differences in managing cash and cashless spending will also be discussed. Especially relevant is a discussion about letting kids use plastic cards as part of their money management learn experience.

Approach kid’s allowance in a new way
Lynne Finch helps parents teach their kids about money from piggy banks to online banking. “It’s time to teach the kids how to manage money they can’t see or touch,” says the author of The No-Cash Allowance. Follow Lynne’s common sense approach for teaching children that money is a number with kids as young as pre-school and continuing through high school.
