When I was a kid, getting a five dollar bill tucked inside a birthday card from Grandma was like hitting the lotto. But when I try to give my little nieces and nephews $20 gift cards to Barnes & Noble (my favorite gift for the kiddies in the family!) they seem to think it’s chump change.
All of their grumbling has me wondering at what age cash is an appropriate present for kids. What is the right amount? How do you teach kids about finances through little lessons like this? You tell us!
