Marnie and Mark's teenage daughters are also learning better money management. Gracie and Victoria, who used to rely on mom and dad for a steady supply of spending money, no longer manipulate their parents for items they can buy themselves. Marnie says her girls have "basically quit" asking her for cash and now handle their own finances.
Victoria, who works part-time as a sales associate, has started asking for more shifts—bringing home an extra $100 a month. Gracie earns money by babysitting—$80–100 a month!
