How kids GET money™
EXPERIENTIAL FINANCIAL LITERACY
While parents maintain visibility and control, kids of all ages (5 to 22) develop financial literacy through vital, firsthand experience with their own real money. Allowance Manager is how kids GET money (not just receive it, but actually understand it).
HOW IT WORKS
Set the system to automatically post an allowance entry to each kid's account each week. Then as exceptions arise (e.g. tasks completed, gifts received, purchases or donations made), quickly and easily add credit and debit entries as appropriate. When your family/kid is ready, add the AllowanceCard® (accepted everywhere VISA is accepted) to empower kids to make decisions at real world points of sale. Move money to an AllowanceCard in manageable amounts as needed. Transactions made with the AllowanceCard dovetail seamlessly and automatically into the accounts. With a simple glance at the app, know who has how much and why. Through this early, frequent firsthand experience with their own real money, kids simply become effortlessly financially literate.

THE GOAL - OUR KIDS: GREAT WITH MONEY™
We parents want our kids to develop crucial life skills.
One such skill is understanding money.
Like any skill, it is best honed through firsthand experience.
Recognizing this, we introduce allowance.
THE ISSUE - UNRELIABLE FOLLOW-THROUGH
Because our lives are busy, we neglect to follow through.
We forget when, how much, for what, etc.
This leaves our kids without the ability to practice.
Their only option is to ask us for money.
It also breeds mistrust.
There is a better way.
THE SOLUTION - ALLOWANCE MANAGER®
It automates the mundane and repetitive.
It makes it simple to handle only the exceptions.
As a result, everyone knows who has how much and why.
Kids get reliable, early, frequent, firsthand experience!
Understanding money quickly becomes second nature!
It is a safe, low-stakes learning environment.
THE BOTTOM LINE - WE OWE IT TO OUR KIDS™
Allowance Manager is how kids understand money.
You're raising a money-savvy adult.
Congratulations, you're an awesome parent!
