Which is important - Money or Pocket Money?

Money is important because...

Money makes your life easier, not necessarily happier.

Money will take care of the bills - so that you can spend more time with your loved ones, rather, struggling out there to make ends meet.

Money serves as a great means for our future generations.

Money can be a great tool of security - it could shield you from ill health, arrange safety for your loved ones - can take care of you when you are old.

Money can help make a difference in the world, it could ignite a cause brighter, offer a helping hand to the needy.

In my opinion, I think that pocket money is not that important to us and it depends on how much the child is getting.

And also some children don't know how to spend money and they might just spend it on expensive things and a lot of children spend it on the things their friends get.

I think the best age to start giving a child pocket money is at the age of eight and you should be able to teach that child how and when to spend it.

So I don't really know which one is important.

What do you think?

    It is basically pocket money but the pocket money is from the parents to the child whilst money is from different people to adults.
    Please can you reply if you understand what I'm saying.

    I believe that pocket money is like practise for children. Because most of our parents give us pocket money to help us understand the value of it and how to spend it. So when we grow up and get a job we can understand how to use the money we get.
    So money is important because it's what we earn when we do a job. But pocket money is also important.

    Neither are important, the base line is pretty much the same: money pays for the bills, food, nice things etc. Although they are important money doesn't change happiness, health or yourself. it changes your PERSONALITY not yourself and people don't realise how common it is to think that. Pocket money can often be helpful for say teaching kids the value of money if you use it the right way but otherwise it has no meaning really, no purpose. I've always thought what actually is the purpose of money, it doesn't make you happy all the time, it cause arguments, stress, and worry so what is the actual point.
