parenting, allowances, boosts & advice welcome
We decided to introduce the 3yo more formally to the concept money with her own allowance. Kinda partway in already, we're going to use a Spend/Save/Share model and start at $1/week for every year old she is (so $3 weekly for now). Cash only so the money is tangible.
Would love to hear from other parents and early childhood allowance-receivers about how you're approaching this and how it's going! What works? What should we watch out for?
Politics & pessimism
So with fascist violence preceding the US midterms, and right wing radicalized poll watchers and a plethora of anti democracy candidates - it feels like shit is about to get really bad. And if this is what's going on at midterms, imagine the presidential election in 2 years. Really fucking grim
