Stephanie took the basis of her hand-made ledger that she used while growing up and created My Learning Ledger. With a thoughtful combination of personal input as well as collaboration with teachers and parents, Stephanie was able to create this tool for kids with an intentional mix of structure and fun. Not only did Stephanie’s ledger teach her basic lessons that she has carried with her throughout life, but it has been a cherished keepsake item!
My Learning Ledger was created for children between the ages of 5-12 years old. However, the earlier you can instill the importance of monetary responsibility the better! We believe that once your child has the ability to do basic arithmetic, introduce My Learning Ledger with basic concepts of financial transactions.
If you choose to give your children an allowance, the next questions is, how much? There are many different ways this can be determined. Some people suggest giving 50 cents for each year of age per week. With this method, a 5-year-old would get $2.50 per week. Some adults start by going to their child and asking what amount works for them. You might be surprised what they say – a dollar a week might seem like a lot for them! Youngsters are often content with any amount of money, so don’t be scared to start low!
We get it – you’re busy! How are you supposed to keep up with a new task that needs to be completed every Sunday? Well here’s the good news: My Learning Ledger keeps track of the day allowance is given. Say you are on a vacation one week, have a soccer tournament the next, and just forget the week after. When you do have time to sit down with your children and give their allowance, you will have the exact date they last received it.
