The Allowance Advance
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Julie was sitting at the dinner table with her family. After everyone was finished but before anyone started to leave the table, Julie said, "Mom, Dad, can I ask you a favor?"
 
2     Mom said, "Sure, honey. What is it?"
 
3     Julie took a deep breath. "Can I please have my allowance for the next month now?"
 
4     Mom and Dad looked at each other. Julie's brother Tim said, "Oh, no. Not again."
 
5     Julie looked at Tim. "I didn't ask you," she said calmly. "Mom? Dad?"
 
6     Dad wiped his mouth with the napkin. He folded the napkin and carefully laid it beside his plate. "Julie, I don't want to say ‘no,' but this is becoming a habit. It isn't a good habit to get into, borrowing money so you can spend it before it's really yours. Your mom and I are worried that you are not making good decisions about money."
 
7     "This time it's different, Dad," Julie said. "I don't want the money to buy something."
 
8     "Why do you want the money?" Mom asked.
 
9     Julie said, "I'd rather not tell you. But I have a really good reason."
