Dear Shayna B.,
Some kids I know are getting a weekly allowance from their parents. I don’t. My parents pay for everything I need. I am 10 years old and I think I am old enough to have some of my own money to spend as I want. Do you agree?Sincerely,
Dear Dollar Dilemma,
I think it’s your mother and father’s decision if they want to give you money. Besides, your parents help support you in pretty much everything even if you don’t realize it. Be happy with what your parents have given you. But if you’re still dissatisfied, do things that need to be done which show you’re deserving of an allowance. If your parents still don’t want to give you an allowance, you can always ask your grandparents!Best of luck,
