My mother had a habbit of giving my kids money everyday after she returned from work,now it is just out of hand. They ask for money every 5 minutes and if I don't give them all hell brakes loose. I hate this as I believe my kids are way to young to already ask,want and know money. PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME

Just stop giving it to them. If they freak out... they can go freak out in the bedroom. Be firm and consistent, but patient... they will eventually realize you aren't giving in... as long as you DON'T give in. If you give in... they will just learn that the more they freak out for something the more you will cave in.

You don't give them money every time they ask even if all hell breaks loose. You volunteer at shelters, soup kitchens. You do the Christmas angle. You talk about all the things you have and how some people are not as lucky. Then you can also sort through things you have that another family could use/have.
