Mum Makes 5-year-old daughter ‘pay rent’

Published

on

 Georgia mother said she’s teaching her 5-year-old daughter a valuable lesson by making the child “pay” for food, rent and utilities.

Essence Evans posted the lesson on Facebook Sunday, and it’s already been shared more than 300,000 times.

The mom said every week her daughter gets a $7 allowance, but hands over 71 percent of her “earnings.”

I explained to her that in the real world most people spend most of their paycheck on bills with little to spend on themselves.

So, I make her give me $5 dollars back. $1 for rent $1 for water $1 for electricity $1 for cable and $1 for food. The other $2 she gets to save or do what she wants with.

Evans said she hopes the lesson pays off when her daughter enters adulthood. As for the $5 in “rent money” every allowance? Mom said it’s being put to good use.

“What she doesn’t know is the $5 is actually going away in her savings account, which I will give back to her when she turns 18,” she wrote. “So, if she decides to move out on her own she will have $3,380 to start off.”

While many applauded the mom’s “genius” idea others questioned whether a 5-year-old is too young to learn this money management lesson.

“Too much stress for a child,” one commenter wrote. “Let them grow up and treat them like a child. Care free. They can learn how (to) pay bills when they are older.”

Another commenter responded: “It’s more stressful when ‘kids’ turn 18 & are slapped in the face with the reality of becoming an adult. This child is going to adapt to it well I think!”

Evans told other parents her strategy not only prepares kids for the future.

“When they see how much real bills are, they will appreciate you for giving them a huge discount.”
