During the past few months many people across the world have faced “hardship” as they were unable to go to work and earn a living for themselves and their families. When I was little my parents would encourage me to save my pocket money rather than spend it all at once. When I first started working part time my mum said “ always make sure you have money put aside just in case there was an emergency, you never know what’s around the corner and how your circumstances any change”. Now that I am a parent I find myself giving this advice to my children too. The purpose of the having pocket money is to teach a child a habit of saving and understanding the economy better. However, children may prefer to look at their pocket money as a temporary gift and spend it in ways of their choosing. So my question to you all is:
Should you save your pocket money or spend it all?
Are there any advantages or disadvantages of saving your money ?
