"I MAKE MY 5 YEAR OLD PAY RENT," declared Essence Evans in a now-viral Facebook post.
"Every week she gets $7 dollars in allowance. But I explained to her that in the real world most people spend most of their paycheck on bills with little to spend on themselves," Evans wrote. "So I make her give me $5 dollars back: $1 for rent, $1 for water, $1 for electricity, $1 for cable, and $1 for food."
Evans lets her little girl keep the other $2 to spend on whatever she wants. The $5 Evans collects is deposited into a savings account that she plans to give back to her daughter when she turns 18.
“So if she decides to move out on her own she will have $3,380 to start off.”
