I mean... think about all of the money you spend on your children. I don't see the issue with taking a little bit of the money you most likely put into their savings if you need it.
 
2013-05-08 09:27:33 PM
This is the issue upon which I am believing two sides of this should have the consideration as yes it might seem at the glance which would be the primary of these would be the thing to make judgment on the parents of these but then there is also the other side of this which does not have the problems and we cannot make conclusions of this until the two sides have obtained consideration.

The first side of this says listen it is not the good thing for the individual who is the parent to do the thefting from the child of they.  Listen unless you are the rich executive such as that upon which does the bank working then society does not have the improvement of the stealing by you.  And there is something that tells to me that the Koch brothers might be the individuals who would make the for the excellent pornography naming would not do the theft from the children of them although they might do this from the coffers of the children of the employees LAUGHTER OL.  No this is just the jesting I am doing so let me say however that many people would say OH BUT MEOW IS THIS THE WRONG THING FOR STEALING?  Well yes because it is one of the Amendments to the Old Testament which had the signing by Moses and Larry King.  LAUGHTER OL if you do not get this it is the jokings because Larry King is the older individual.

Now the other side of this says that is the money ever that upon which belongs to the child?  Listen to the things which cannot legally be done by the child such as getting the marriage and having the duty of the military and listening to the music which does not cause the annoyance to others and signing the contract.  OH THAT IS THE IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION OF THIS you might say and I will say to you that you are the correct individual.  The child is not of the legal age for doing the ownership of the bacon bank but also let me say to you that the parents are teaching the children the important lesson if they do the thefting from they and that lesson is do not be the person with the stupid parents without the retirement savings or you might be doing the care taking of they until they are the old people.

Now when I consider the two sides of this I have the conclusion that really what does this matter as kids are stupid and do not do the appropriate counting.  Just say to the child OH I AM SORRY BUT THE TOOTH FAIRY NEEDED THE MONEY FROM YOU TO GIVE TO THE OTHER CHILD BUT YOU WILL HAVE THE RETURN WHEN YOU LOSE THE TEETH OF YOU IN THE OLD AGE.  Give this a few days and the child will forget this because children have the short memories which probably is good for many of you as you probably remember the days when the thyroid disorder of you led to the bigger child and the pickings.

So yes if you wish for stealing the money from the child of you then first you need to be the Fark.com poster who has the sex which is the unlikely thing but it is still the appropriate under this the situation.

Some might think it's ok to take money from your child's savings account because it doesn't "belong" to them, but by that logic, I can walk up to any kid on the street and steal their toys or candy or guns because, hey, f*ck off kid, you aren't legally entitled to own anything.

I agree that, under certain circumstances, desperate times call for desperate meaasures. I'm not suggesting a family should go hungry when there's money sitting in a child's savings account. I just don't think that's what typically happens. Too many parents over-spend, get into credit card debt, and then use the child's savings as a bailout.

I find that really unacceptable, and shameful.

Two kids, each has a savings account.  Every penny they get for birthdays, etc., goes into those accounts.  They get to keep it until we're about to lose the house.
 
2013-05-08 09:56:27 PM
I have no idea why my parents took my $100 and put it in a savings account. Basically all it taught me is that savings accounts are completely useless to the account holder.

2013-05-08 09:58:01 PM
Dad used to do that.  The savings account was fairly safe, but the "jar full of money" tended to be a "jar full of IOU's".   Of course, since most of the jar was either allowances or birthday gifts from Dad, I really didn't mind.

Usually went:

Here's $100 for Christmas.
Oh crap, I need money for food
Slips IOU in.

/Heck, Dad's current car was mostly my money.  I wasn't using the money during college, so Dad bought a car half-financed and half my money, and gave it back in a big dump after tax season right when I needed a couple grand to move to Seattle for the summer.  Very nice enforced saving.

2013-05-08 10:01:12 PM
I'd take a small money from the kid's savings for things like tuition to a good school, clothes / uniforms, and gifts the kid wants purchase for family members. It is a way for the child to contribute to their own costs and helps them feel involved in family financial decisions. It can also be turned into a lesson on budgeting.

FTFA: The survey also found 34 percent of parents have dipped into a child's piggy bank.

Here's the simplest way I can put it: One of the main reasons that you give a kid a piggy bank (or, when they get old enough, one of those teenager savings accounts,) is to teach them to be responsible with money, delay gratification, prioritize what they spend it on, etc. If that money can disappear at any time without warning, the kid is going to learn exactly the opposite lesson that you're trying to teach them: Spend all your money as soon as possible, because if you try to save it, mom and dad will just re-appropriate it anyway.

/ I mean, if you're really cynical about life and want to teach your kids not to trust the banking/finance industry, that'll probably work well, but...

And you assume there's still 500K left??? Funny. You apparently don't know how net worth works, as it's rarely in liquid cash form.

/some of it got lost when property values fell (600K home dropped to 300K, look there's most of that supposed 500K that's left), rest of what was left was spent making payments on fees and the home equity loan that said father took out on said home so it wouldn't get foreclosed when SURPRISE! he lost his job and couldn't afford payments on a dumbass ARM

My dad stole my piggy bank money once to pay the paper boy.  I was annoyed by the theft but more upset because the piggy bank was a nice, hand-painted ceramic pig that his girlfriend had given me that was worth far more than the two or three dollars that was inside.  It had no opening through which the coins could be removed.  I only put pennies and nickels in there because I had no intention of ever breaking it to get the coins back.

Thanks for bringing up hurtful memories, Fark!

Thats like saying you have slaves because you make your kids do the dishes or vacuum without paying them.  They are part of the family and should chip in, yes even financially.  Hell since my 12 year old got a job its not uncommon at all for us just to tell him to walk to the store and get something we need.  Not like its just us, I've seen my neighbor do the same.  I bet that kids spent like $800 in the last year for stuff for our bbq's.

Hey, kid, as soon as you can balance a ledger and can show me how much in arrears ... you are, considering the Disney trip you just had to have and 200 dvds you never watch, I'll pay you back.  If you don't even realize that my...er...I mean your account has been altered, then pray I do not alter it further.
