Most parents give pocket money, they all give different amounts yet we’re all trying to make sure that we’re benefitting our children by teaching them about money.
Join us to talk about your personal take on pocket money at our #pktmnyparents Twitter party on Tuesday 15 January at 13:00. We’ll be talking about what you give for pocket money, when they receive it and what feels right for you.
The party is sponsored by PKTMNY, a new website that provides a great new way for children to save and manage their pocket money online. It was created to help parents and children manage and learn about money together. Parents control their children’s pocket money, set tasks for earning and electronically transfer allowance or earned rewards onto a special card that kids can actually use at the shops and online. The PKTMNY card is the only card totally controlled by a parent and they can choose spending limits and decide where it can be used. Kids use the site and the soon-to-be-released app to set savings goals, track their spending, manage their tasks or chores for earning, and create a wish list with pictures of the things they’re saving to buy. Parents can even invite relatives to also be part of their PKTMNY family account so they can view wish lists, savings goals and also directly send money into the child’s account.
Tweet your experiences with the #pktmnyparents hashtag from 13:00 – 14:00 on Tuesday 15 January and you could win your own stash of pocket money. Two people will win £100 cash, and 10 people will win £20 in PKTMNY to add to or start their child’s account and free 6-month membership.
