Small change for a sea change

Most of us were lucky enough as children to be given pocket money. What was pocket money for you as a child is small change now. It can help us give our children experiences and support that will create a sea change in their childhood.

My pocket money story

I didn't know there was such a thing as pocket money when I was a child. Obviously as a teen ager I was aware but I can honestly say I do not recall ever receiving a penny in pocket money. I can also recall that while there was not a lot of money in the house we never wanted for anything.
My own two children did not receive pocker money until there early teens. This was pocket money with a difference. The got a monthly allowance with was made up of pocker and clothing money. It was a reasonable amount of money and it was interesting to see how they sometimes spent most of it on clothes and other times it was spent mostly on enjoyment
