I have always believed that it’s only when kids of any age spend “their” money that they pay close(r) attention to the cost.  And the recent article by The New York Times adds further support to this theory! 

So parents, partner up on the cost of anything with your kids to help them understand value.  All kids, at every age, need to have “skin in the game” to care – even when it comes to college.
