TikTok user @craftedandcozy has recently sparked a heated debate on the internet about you should teach your children financial responsibility, and whether it’s a ‘parenting hack’.
In a recent video, she shared that she makes her 7-year-old pay rent and bills at the end of every month to teach her financial responsibility. The video has since been viewed more than 2.7 million times, and she claims that her tactic has ‘worked wonders’ in her home.
In a follow-up video, the TikToker provided more insight into her tactic.
Her unusual parenting method, however, has raised both praise and criticism from commenters. While some wrote that this is a good way to start, others thought that it’s a bit too much and that parents should let children be children.
