Should Children Be Allowed To Spend Their Allowance On Anything They Please?

When I say children, I mean those 18 and under. Some get allowances, but sometimes limits are set on what you can and can't buy. What do you think?

The day I ever decide to give up on anything is the day the internet goes on the endangered species list and humanity starts savaging for WiFi passwords, and that fate is yet to come true.

I think there should be limits. Some kids might wanna buy ##### or something. It's better if they have SOME limits.

Being normal is so boring~
Why not be insane instead?

Yes but then again, the parent is giving the child freedom to purchase products using the money they withheld. If you're giving them money to use to buy stuff, then what's the point of an allowance. Why not just buy their favorite snacks and let them bring one to school each day?

They should be allowed to spend it on what they want, to a certain extent.
I mean obviously they shouldn't use it to buy prohibited items, but if they blow it all on candy that's cool.

What do you mean by healthy? Some kids will spend their allowances on snacks that could be sugary and fattening. If you mean things like c********s or a******l, then I see your point.

Yes. The parent is giving their child money because they feel like giving them money. They haven't earned it. They didn't work for it. It's allowance. That means the parent is just giving money usually for no reason. If that child decides to spend it on something ignorant, it's the parent to blame. 

1.) For not telling their child what and what not to buy at a younger age.
2.) Not realizing that their child is not responsible with their money.

Honestly, children shouldn't get allowances. They are being completed supported by their parents. They have food, clothes, a bed, shelter, etc. free of charge. Why should the parents give them money for no reason? They shouldn't money to go buy nonsensical things. That child needs to find a way of earning money other than being handed it.

As long as it's legal, I believe so. I mean, if it's something like d***s or a*****l, well the kid knows the law. But you see... the parent gave them the money. When they do that, they are giving them complete control over what they want. The parent is to blame; they never said what not to buy.

Definitely, that's what freewill is for.

Yes, because hopefully they will learn after a while that what they are buying is not smart and they could make better buying choices. I think that by the parents letting them buy what they chose, the kids will learn about making good money decisions.
