MUM MAKES CHILDREN PAY FOR FOOD AND INTERNET
Written by Lola Narawa on January 9, 2023
Its never too early to start teaching your children the value of money.
Mother of 4 Ashleigh Jade Le has gone a step further and charges her children whose ages range from 9,10,11&12 for their meals and internet Netflix subscription and even the water bill.
The mum insists that if her children don’t make their payment, she will simply not give them access. While this may be surprising, Ashleigh assures that her method helps her kids understand the value of money.
The mum explained that getting her children to ‘pay’ has been the ‘most funny experience’.
She explained: “The day that I told them I was doing this, they had the funniest opinions about paying bills – and some of them were so in shock.
“When I told them they had to pay for food, some of them looked like they were going to cry and when I explained that it was fake money and they didn’t have to do anything, I was just going to give them the money and they were just going to hand it back to me, they were still so upset that they were losing money.
“Since that day, things have changed massively. They are so much more thoughtful about where they put their things, they treat things so much better.”
