Some Christians, in an attempt to be good stewards, do the same thing. They squirrel away far more than they'll ever need thinking that this is somehow virtuous. To avoid this obsessive-compulsive abuse of money, we encourage our kids to blow some of their money in the "here and now."

Is this the perfect money management strategy for all families and all children? Probably not. But it has worked well for us. It might be a good fit for your family too.
