Forget Allowance—Just Get Off Facebook.

Have you heard about the 12-year-old girl who made a deal with her dad to get $200 dollars if she stayed off of Facebook for five months?  If not, check out the Los Angeles Times article.  If you have, you’re probably thinking one of two things.  Either one: why didn’t I think of that? Or two: I could be rich if I were this girl.

I’d get off of Facebook right now and start banking in the cash if I could.  Facebook is a great way to stay connected, but it’s definitely starting to get to be boring and will stay that way until it starts to make some major changes.  And for five months?  You can survive with a smart phone for five months.  Maybe we should all get off Facebook for five months.  Get outside. Grab pen and paper and write a letter to stay connected.  And hey, if you can make a deal with your dad, maybe you can get $200.

  1. I definitely wish my dad would’ve done that when I was younger. Facebook takes up way too much time nowadays, and I feel like everyone would be better off with a break.
