Teaching the Kids

May 21st, 2008 at 02:26 pm

DS has a Kindergarten party next week. Instead of asking the parents for donations of food, etc., they've asked for a $3 donation. DS paid for it out of his allowance, on his own accord. His teacher was just shocked!

DD #1 WILL NOT spend her money (4 y.o.). She pays her tithing, and is saving the rest for some flavor of Littlest Pet Shop toy. Good for her. She has a goal and that makes me happy.

I feel like it is really important to teach them about money now so that they will be better off than we are. I want the best for them, as most parents want for their children. And, for me, the best for them is a working knowledge of this world, and how to deal with life.

    Good work, Angela! I know I need to work more with this with Daisy. I think from being an only (and therefore paying way more attention to her parents than I remember paying to mine) she knows more about some money related stuff than I did at her age.

    Yay! I have grade school children too and it's going well. My older boy is careful with earning/spending, by younger girl is more carefree. See you in the blogs!

    You are doing great teaching them about money this young. I plan on doing something similar with my kids. My parents taught me it was rude to talk about money and that got me nowhere. So kudos to you for starting them on a working knowledge of the financial world.

    A.S. - We didn't talk about $ growing up, either, so I figure I'd better start now.
