My SD is coming to stay for the summer. She is going to babysit my kids to make some spending cash and to spend time with them. So instead of just paying her, I made her a budget just like mine. So my husband has completely overreacted. He says its too much. I told him it is never too early to teach how to save. Now she can save for whatever she wants to spend it on, but I just want to teach her how fast saving can help her money grow. I do this for myself. I will do this when my kids are older. I am not going to pay her weekly and not going to teach her what comes along with having an income. That's what my daddy did to me, and it stuck with me. My husband refuses to let me show him how. He just tells me to take care of it and let him know how much we have. So I told him what if she winds up with someone like him. She needs to know. Am I out of line?
