We dun hv this practice.

will it make him be more responsible if he were to pay for his own carelessness?


Let me ask him tmr.

But his pocket money also comes from us, not what he earns, will the practice mean anything to him?

When we make the child pay from his pocket money, he will feel the pinch. While it's all from our pockets, if you think about it, it's also from his pocket. By carving a sum out of his usual pocket money, you are in a way Tightening his purse string. No?

I dunno how he will feel. He is not like elder boy who feels the pinch easily.

Pocket money, I give one lump sum which is a few hundreds at the start of the year, replenish when the level is low. These days, ah boy is spending more on food. I won't want to deprive him of money to buy food.

Huh? Isn't this the "money tree" style? Shake and more will come? Sorry, no offense meant.

I think a fixed sum for a fixed period is more appropriate. A child needs to learn how to manage and safeguard his own money and belongings.

Compared to the Taiwan brand I bou from Watson's (non snail), this NR leaves a smoother feel on the hands.

One of my finger tip has cracked skin, lotions do not seem to work on it :shrug:

Try those richer hand or nail cream. Usually works for me. There are quite a few to choose from bodyshop. Want more atas brand, Crabtree has a gardener hand therapy. Pretty good too.
