When his 6 year old asked for a raise on pocket money in order to buy a toy that they really wanted, this Dad had the best response.
He wrote a well thought out letter informing his child that upping the amount of pocket money received is a request that had no choice but to be denied.
Here's the letter if you don't want to squint at the text.
“We regret to inform you at this time that we are unable to provide the loan in the amount requested of $20. After reviewing your account, we find that you have insufficient funds, and a history of not doing your chores.
-Sincerely Dad, CEO, DAD S&L”
