How to Teach Children About Money in 7 Easy Steps

  Money can be a touchy subject for kids and parents alike, but it's also a topic that needs to be discussed. We want our children to understand the value of money and how it works, but it can be tricky to discuss these concepts without sounding preachy. As a parent myself, I've found that making learning about money fun is one way to get my child interested in the topic without worrying about them feeling like we're pushing an agenda or being lectured at. Here are some fun ways that you can teach your child about money : Let kids invent their own games or create their own money. Let kids invent their own games or create their own money. This works especially well with older children who already have a grasp on financial concepts like spending, saving, budgeting and investing.

Christmas Wish List 2010

Every year we pray and yearn for our wishes to be granted.  What is written in the lists are the material or intangible things we want to have in the next year to come.  Maybe not all but some of our Christmas wishes do come true.

I've noticed lots of Christmas wish lists cropping up lately, so here is what my own Christmas wish list comprises of:

§  I ask for peace on Earth and goodwill to all men. Conflicts and war be ended.
§  I want an ebook reader, instead of a new cellphone.  I’ve been reading my ebooks in my notebook, desktop pc, pda or in my son’s psp. I need to organize my ebooks in one gadget that serves its purpose.
§  This is a bit embarrassing but I saw a lady boots in my favorite shoe outlet and I want it....
§  I wish for a new job for my eldest son, though he enjoys his work right now being a technical support representative in one of the prestigious bpo here in the Philippines, as a mother I am very much concerned with his health and aspiring for a much better corporate job where his skills being an IT would develop and flourish.
§  I hope and pray for my youngest son to maintain or better uplift his class standing/ranking. Being a transferee, he got into the cream of the crop section and entered the top 10 being the 6th rank on the first quarter of the school year, come second quarter he made it into the 3rd rank. Third quarter exams is scheduled before the school’s Christmas vacation, so I’m wishing him the best of luck.
§  Good health and much better life for my family, parents, sisters and their families.
§  I want a tablet pc too.
§  Most of all, I just want a brilliant Christmas with my two sons, husband and my family.
