👧🏻💰 Daughter complains about unequal allowance, causes family feud

A family feud has been sparked after a daughter complained about unequal allowance. The father, a lawyer, and mother, a boxing coach, give their two daughters, Annie and Judy, an allowance of $75 a month for doing chores. However, Annie, who enjoys art and sells her portraits, earns an extra $300 a month on average. Judy, who isn't into anything in particular, complained that it wasn't fair. The parents offered to pay for classes if she wanted to learn something new, but Judy declined. They also offered her more money if she did more chores, but it still couldn't match Annie's income. The parents refused to simply give Judy more money to match Annie's income, as they believed it would set a bad moral precedent and they couldn't afford it. The situation has escalated, with both sides of the family taking sides. What do you think about the situation? Share your thoughts and comments below.
