Philosophy for Children: Pocket money debate

Year 4 debated whether pocket money should given to them or whether it should be earned today during a P4C session.

There were lots of good discussion points being made and lots of thought provoking ideas. One child said that they should have to earn their pocket money because it would prepare them well for the real world of work when they became adults. Another argued that children went to school all day and were far too tired to do chores and to earn their pocket money. Another agreed and said that pocket money was important to have because the children needed to learn about how to spend money sensibly.

All very sensible points for debate year 4.

What do the rest of you think?
