Lol, great thread man. I am 39 and have two sons, 4 and 7 years of age.
I was never a intested n being the GQ type, only wanted clothing that was comfertable / but cool also. My dad was never home, mom had her hands full with 4 teanagers in HS. If I wanted something other than what my parents wanted I had to purchase it with my own money. I got a part time job when I was 16 and worked 40 hrs a week ontop of HS throughout HS.
You should take this same approach. The kids will get the bare neccesities, if the want more, make them get a job and use their own money. This will teach them the value of money and work ethic.
