Like a lot of parenting topics, people have a strong opinion about whether to give or not to give a kid allowance. But one mom has taken the allowance debate to a whole new level by sharing that she actually takes money from what she gives her kid. "I MAKE MY 5 YEAR OLD PAY RENT," Essence Evans declared on Facebook. But don’t freak out, when you hear her reasoning for it, it all makes sense.
Evans’s post has gone viral, but not everyone is a fan of her idea. Some critics say kids shouldn’t be made to feel like they have to pay rent for a home they didn’t ask to be born into. Others feel this little girl is too young to understand the lesson. But others applaud Evans for her clever plan that teaches her daughter about money at such a young age.
