How did you work the allowance?


Did you give them a credit card and give them a monthly limit?

Did you put money in the bank and give them an atm card?

Did you send them cash?



I know the school has a credit card type thing, but that is only good on campus.

 Well, I have one on campus.  This year, because she was close enough, I just gave her cash when I saw her.

We will be doing the debit card with her account connected to ours this summer (she is still underage) so we can add money when necessary.  She isn't a big spender, so it doesn't concern me.
