Baby isn't here yet, but will be soon!
My kids save for the things they want, they understand looking for a sale or bargain, and we are working to help them become financially responsible adults.
My oldest is 3 so I haven't had to have the money talk just yet. I've tried explaining certain things to him but he doesn't fully understand yet.
The concept is still a bit confusing for my 4 year old, but she knows how many chore points she needs before she can get a toy. We'll convert to money very soon.
Both my girls are a bit too young to understand where money comes from, but I do use every opportunity I have to explain that toys and food and clothing don't just magically appear and that Momma has to work hard to get those things for them. I have always been terrible with money, so I hope that tools like these can help me not have my girls make the same money mistakes that I always did!
It is a forever life education to continually share finance information with your children. You can give each age group, age appropriate information. One of my son's had the vision to pick stocks at an early age by the products he loved. Now that they are older, we often give them money to invest in stocks. I like to see what they choose. It is a good tip for me... see we teach each other as we grow older.
My 8 year old daughter and I have briefly touched on the subject of money and taking care of bills/finances. I've explained to her about how credit works, but haven't gone over everything completely yet. This book would definitely help! Also Tweeted...thanks!
Yes I have had the talk plenty of times
Yes but there's a few things I should touch up on
its my birthday today..my son would love this book
we have had the talk
yes I have. My 15 year old already has a debit card/checking account an knows how to use it responsibly.
Yes, but not my kids. :)
I sure have. We love going to goodwill to find great deals on stuff to remodel. I would love to win a copy of the book to learn new tips on how to teach her about money.
