Child age is often called tender age. What do children usually do? They play, study, sleep and just enjoy their life. It’s better for them not to know about the problems of adult life as long as it’s possible. But this mother is sure that it’s not correct.
But one fact is very interesting – Essence gives her
daughter 7$ every week but at the same time she charges her small child to pay
the rent and common expenses and asks 5$ back.
Evans explains her position in a following way. The woman is sure that real life is super hard, and her kid should be ready for everything. Mother says that unfortunately, adults spend most of their lives paying taxes and keeping the smallest part of their incomes.
So, that’s why she
wants her daughter to be aware of it and not to wear pink sunglasses when she
steps in her adult life. Moreover, Essence adds that when children realize how
much money is spent on bills, they respect their parents more.
Obviously, not all people agree with Evans. Most of them are in shock and they are terrified by her method of upbringing her child. One man even wrote that he would be ashamed to share this story with other people. He called Evans a horrible parent.
But Essence feels good about it and even encourages other parents to raise their kids this way. Her explanation is that the money, these 5$, are not being wasted but they are saved for her daughter’s future education.
Evans wants to give the whole sum to her daughter as soon as she
turns 18. So, she would have more than 3,000$ to pay for her college.
It’s quite hard to understand the decision of Evans but it has its advantages and disadvantages. Essence wants her kid to be strong and well-prepared for the future. But at the same time, it’s necessary to remember that at this age child is very vulnerable and his/her parents are the best example for him/her.
So, it’s important to realize how to explain things
to kids and how to help them to make the right steps to their future life.
