In China there has been a custom that children will be given some money as a lunar New Year gift during the spring festival. These days, the money given to the children has become larger and larger. Some children are said to have received 5000 yuan during the spring festival. As children have money, they begin to spend it in a wasteful way. So some people think that this custom should be changed.
Other people think that it is all right to give children some money on special occasion, which can make them happy. They also think that children seldom receive money from their parents during the year, and they should learn how to spend it properly.
My opinion is that adults may give the children money as a gift, but this gift should not be too expensive. And they should tell the children how to spend it wisely. By spending it, children will learn to be independent.
