the issue wasnt the money or what they would do with it, it was the fact of them getting equal pay... hope that makes sense
Good that they have accounts. Me, I do take my children's money allowing so much for fun and the rest to mutuals or 529 accounts. Here in PA, 80% of the fatalities on the highways are 16 year olds. I am forcing her (my current 16 yr. old) to hold off until she is 17 when the fatality rate decreases by at least 11% with maturity. Education vs. Engine, here education wins, even if I am the mean mom. I can be her friend when she is 25.

Maybe, even though it resembles lack of thought, x-dh was just trying to ensure they all felt loved equally and appreciated an uncomplicated move. But then again, I don't know your x and his motives. Just a different spin on it I suppose.
