About the book

The No-Cash Allowance by Lynne Finch is an inventive, original system.  Children from pre-school through high school learn how to manage money as a number. Activities replicate use  of debit cards, ATMs, electronic transfers and credit transactions using their own money.

Examples of dialogue between parent and child create a picture of real life situations. Charts, tables and illustrations show how to set-up the allowance system. As a result, children track all their money in their own accounts.

A no-cash allowance places continuing control of cash and non-cash money in the hands of the child. Consequently this creates a child-size version of real-life money management.
