All children need to be taught how to manage their money - especially children who have attention-deficit disorder.
Money skills simply don't come naturally to kids who are impulsive, disorganized, or distractible. Fortunately, a weekly allowance is a great way to teach a child how to live on a budget and how to be a smart shopper. It's also a great tool for showing the vital importance of saving. And there's a bonus: A child who receives an allowance is less likely to nag his parents for spending money.
