But the “nuts and bolts” are up to you. You decide with your child how much money goes to each goal. You decide on the rules for when they can spend their money. You decide if they get paid for chores, get an allowance or need to put aside a certain amount of money in a savings account. This is why principle based learning is so powerful.
