How to Teach Children About Money in 7 Easy Steps

Image
  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.

One of the best birthday gift I received last January 4, 2011 is a show piece that I really treasure, a source of my pride and joy, a very memorable and undying remembrance. 

As shown in my first article, this blog was born on November 9, 2010.  Being a greenapple in the blogging world, I am still a noob in the ins and outs of blogosphere.  I am still in the process of learning through interacting, reading blog tips for dummies and blogs of fellow bloggers, joining bloggers’ groups and many more.  I still have to go a long long way to be a professional blogger to acquire page ranks, commendations etc. 

Well, I am not rushing things, I do part time blogging to put into use my passion for writing.  I compose and write articles according to my own experiences and interests to share tips and ideas, to emphasize a personal point of view, to inform or give words of advices to my readers.

I started with http://notepad-corner.blogspot.com, come January 4, 2011, I already have a domain name www.notepadcorner.com.  This swift  change was a birthday gift courtesy of a fellow ICafe Owner, an A- blogger, a friend, a comrade, an ally.  The very first person who encouraged me to blog and continuously supporting me is Mhel Blankpixels Ignacio, the person behind these blogs:

To you my dear friend Mhel, my deepest appreciation and gratitude, you made my natal day complete!  If you only knew how much happiness engulfed me on that day! I cannot eat well due to over excitement, I almost forgot that my right knee is swelling and aching lol.  I am really not expecting that you will be giving me a domain name too, for I am looking forward for the blog theme you’re creating for me.  The blog theme is so much for a gift already.  Now I am more inspired, encouraged and challenged to write more :) . It took me a while to post this, because I keep on editing this post for the nth time already hehe, for I do not know how to express my sincerest gratitude.  

Once again,  Thank you very much Missy! More power and may God bless you always!

  2. Awww... I'm so touched naman. You're very welcome, sis! And I'm really proud to say I encouraged you to blog 'cause you're one heck of a writer! I love reading your tips on motherhood, which I know will be useful for me in the future (I hope!!).

    Thanks for being patient with the theme. *LOL* Like what I said in the past, you're one of my favorite people now. I guess I'm drawn towards warm people, too. *hugs*

    I really hope we'd get to meet each other soon. Sama ka na sa bloggers kitakitz! Yeyy! :)

  3. yes, like you, i am also very grateful, thankful and lucky to have Mhel (blankpixels) as a friend. i consider her as my online/blog IDOL. She is a good example for all of us, especially, to the entire blog realm.

    Mhel is very helpful--to the highest level. Very hard working and generous. ^_^ She is not selfish.

    She is a great mentor. She deserves a blog award ^_^

  4. Awww... touched naman ako, Karl! I don't help naman everyone, but those who are willing to listen, learn and exert effort din on their part. There are some kasi who only want spoon-feeding and those are the ones I don't intend or want to help. :)

    Glad to be of service! Chos! :P
