Pocket money is being spent unwisely.

Good Essays
Money is a thing without which person cannot exist and it plays a very big and important role in people's lives. It has a big power: it makes life conditions nicer and more comfortable, but my concern is that there is a possibility of ruining person's life by the help of money. However, money is not so powerful it can buy everything; you cannot buy true love, health for all diamonds in the world. But money given to children, the so-called pocket money has some special power due to inexperienced minds of its spendthrifts. Very often this money is spent carelessly because its owner - small child - has no idea about its value and efforts to get it.

In most cases this money is spent unwisely. Why is it so? I will try to describe the main reasons concerning this tough problem. Nowadays some children have generous pocket money and it is easy for them to get it. They should only ask their parents. And parents lavishly give it every time, because in a way they do not want to hurt "the little heart." They want to provide their darlings with everything they wish (I do not speak about families.) In such cases children do not bother about things they buy, they want it and do it. They do not bother if the item is necessary for them, not speaking about vital necessity of it. Now there are parents to be blamed for giving pocket money, which their "babies" spend before the wind. For those parents pocket money is the way to get free of children, of their problems and puzzling questions. Adults just give money and say: "Go, go!" And child goes happily... But where to? To the modern and industrial world that is thirsty for their money, which will be spent with no particular aim. And here a new problem appears - the commercial world tries to control children through newspapers, magazines, radio and TV, in a word, - mass media. They produce advertisements that are meant for persons who do not think or realize the causes and consequences in the slightest way. And child (but not only)
