  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.

Kids Never Run-Out Of Questions



Kids, especially toddlers are full of queries.  The stage of getting to know and curious about the things around them.  This is the phase where the foundation of knowledge and wisdom begins.

Never show them that you are annoyed of their unending questions.  If you are too tired to think for a good or best answer to his/her question, explain why you cannot answer him/her for the meantime. You may tell your child that would be your assignment and you will discuss it with him or her again later, while you divert his/her attention to play or do some writing.

My youngest son is already 11 years old, but still he never run out of questions.  It’s a good thing Mr. Google is always to the rescue ahaha. I can no longer answer his questions right away, I need to do some researching before I could come up with a correct answer to his querries about the greek and roman mythology. I bought him books to read on, yet still questions arise lol.

I am sharing with you some fun facts to share with your toddlers. I find these lines very educational for a small child.
