My children will not get the money!

DH and I got our tax returns and claimed our 3 children. Well he and I decided we're going on to Cancun for a week because we barely spent time together since DH works on days and I work 3rd shift. We supported our children all year long and they're not getting any of the money they want to spend on. They will be going to my MIL's house while we enjoy our vacation together alone. Do you give your children money when you claimed them on your tax return or not?

Never heard it was a thing to give money just because you claimed them.

Is this a thing? Lol

how old are the children? We usually put some away and do a family vacation in the summer, the rest of the return gets used for household stuff

Um, how old are these kids? And if their young, you guys should spend some money on them. I mean splurge a little on clothes, shoes, food etc...you're still their parents.

It never even occurred to me (like so many things until CM) to give my children tax refund money.

The most I'll do is put some in his college fund and buy him some new clothes and shoes since he out grew his shoes (poor guys toes were curled up in his tennis shoes today) and all of his jeans have holes in the knees lol

Quoting Mrs_Boho: Never heard it was a thing to give money just because you claimed them.

Well, other than take them to the movies, to dinner, and birthday gifts because they both have March birthdays - we've never given them the money. We also purchase their summer spring wardrobes if they've gotten bigger and need new stuff.

As for a vacation - well - we have never done that
