Imparting Financial Education to Our Children:

tip #1 Teach the Value of Money 

Kids are much smarter than we give them credit for. They absorb everything around them, most notably, our own activities and interactions. The absolute key to raising a financially successful future adult is making sure kids understand that money is earned. When they see us swipe the credit card and move on or push a button to get cash at the ATM, they don’t connect with what it took to earn the money in the first place. By placing value around the work we do and encouraging children to do the same, our kids start to think about purchases in terms of work. They become more discerning in their decisions and less prone to waste.
