16. Why require them to have more than $20 in their account to buy lunch in the first place?
Edited on Wed Jan-28-09 12:28 PM by pnwmom
I would put a couple hundred in the account at a time. Eventually I would get a notice that there was only a few dollars in the account (or even a small deficit ) and I would put in more. My children never were embarrased (they would have told me!) and never went hungry.

It makes no sense to require that children keep a permanent excess of $20 in their accounts. Why shouldn't children even be able to bring in their money every day if they wanted to?
