Air Date: 04/17/12 Allowances can be a tool for teaching your child how to make good decisions with money. This week Cheryl talks about the uses of allowance to teach children how to save from week to week in order to purchase a greater, more expensive toy. Helping your child learn how to use money wisely and save may be some of the best tools you give your child throughout their life. Most of all, when used appropriately, children can learn that with hard work and discipline, they can earn what they want. Parenting with Cheryl Erwine airs every Tuesday morning on 88.7 FM, KUNR, and can be reached at 775-331-6723 or email@example.com.
