How to use "Make allowance" in context?

Parents often ask their children how much money they should save for their own future. One option is to have children make individual savings accounts and add money as they earn. Another is to have the children make allowances.

allowances should be determined based on a child's age and income. The amount a child is given should be enough to cover necessities like food, clothes, and shelter, but not more. It is important to establish a regular allowance system so that children know what is expected of them and they can track their progress.

When making allowances, it is important that parents modeling the allowance system are consistent in what they give their children.
