Many people earn pocket money, but should we stop it due to the fact that some parents may feel under pressure for their child to receive it.? Money is precious - especially to familes where the parents don't work. So should we stop this altogether?
Yes, we should stop it.
If one family earn pocket money and another don't, it can be unfair if the parents wish not to or can't afford it. People may feel under pressure to receive or give money and things can end up badly. If we stopped pocket money altogether, then it would save people a lot of embarrasment at not getting any money so it can be saved up for better uses and arguments about awkward questions will happen less. We would all be happier and many people will benefit from stopping pocket money.
No, we should keep on going with pocket money.
Busy parents rely on their children to work around the house and get paid in return. It wouldn't be fair to stop this just because some familes feel jealous of another's systems. Familes benefit from it just as much as others would do if pocket money was stopped. If some people can't get pocket money then they don't have to talk about it. Anyway, a lot of children spend it on sweets that others aren't really missing out on. Parents don't give their children that much anyway.
I think that pocket money can stay but instead of money being earnt, you can get other things. I think that if children think they always have money in their pockets they will become reckless and not realise the value of what they are dealing with. That way, everything will be a lot more fair.
I would love to hear from you and your opinion...
