Good for you!!! sissylue :-)
Have you thought of 'giving' your 9 yr old a 'sum' of $$ and she is then 'responsible' for providing the resources for a 'dinner'.. and let her KEEP anything that she is able to 'save' from that amount?
I'm certain that you can imagine how to do this for a 'homecooked' meal, or a 'restaurant meal'... in a way that would not exceed your budget ... but would let her 'learn by experience'.
hmm.. perhaps the amount 'saved' could go into a 'kitty' for another expense, that is shared by all the family?
I BELIEVE in letting kids 'learn by experience' :-)
and I think you are doing a wonderful job already :-)
