    Default How should parents introduce their kids to pocket money?

    I think "introduce pocket money to their kids" sounds more natural than the original as "introduce" sounds "explain". What do you think is the correct order and nuance difference?

    44)How should parents introduce their kids to pocket money?
    ( ① ) Some parents link this with a set of chores to help their kids understand that money is something they earn. ( ② ) A mother of a child says that linking jobs, such as laying the table and emptying the dishwasher, with pocket money is helpful. ( ③ ) She likes the fact that it makes her child familiar

    I don't agree. "Introduce their kids to xxxx" is more natural. Do you mean "'introduce' sounds like 'explain'"?

    They are introducing their children to the concept and the reality of pocket money. The word order is fine for me.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
