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.

Tang Galing Mo Kid!

The heavy rainfall yesterday, June 23, 2011, didn’t stop me from attending the launching event of “The Search for Tang Galing Mo Kid”.  My husband lovingly offered to accompany and to drive me to the venue which is very far from our place.  Aside from the fact that it is my first time to attend such an affair, I find the event worthy to be supported especially by a Mommy blogger like me.

Tang celebrates the greatness of today’s kids, and as a part of the celebration they launched the Search for Tang Galing Kids.  This is to encourage more kids to become involved in their communities.  Tang believes that despite their age and innocence, the tiny tykes can bring a refreshing change in the community. As a mother, I am in full support of their goal to bring out the best talents our kids have, not only to win prizes at stake but to contribute something meaningful to the community too!

The search is open to organizations whose members may nominate as many kids they want. Only one child per organization member is allowed. Each kid corresponds to one entry.  Each entry must have a one-pager story on the life of the kid and the small steps that the kid makes or has made which are inspiring and worth emulating. An official nomination form may be mailed to 5thP Advertising at 55D Matahimik St, Teacher’s Village, West Diliman Quezon City. Entries may also be sent via email through with the subject Tang Galing Nomination Form. Entries may be sent in from June 23 to August 6, 2011. Seven winners will be chosen as Tang Galing Kids.

The Seven Tang Galing Kids will be announced on August 23, 2011. Each will receive a cash prize which they can use to implement a project of their choice. The winning kids and their nominating organizations will each garner a Php100,000.00 cash prize.

We, as mothers play a crucial role in shaping a kid’s dream and nurturing his potentials. Nothing beats a mom’s touch in setting a larger-than-life playing field for kids where they can be their own mighty heroes. Moms know best when it comes to giving the much needed support and encouragement to the little ones. 

Our kids may be small but, they think and dream big. It’s high time for a refreshing and youthful change. Let our children shine and show how their little steps can transform into big strides; how these kids’ greatness can make them heroes as they make a difference with Tang.

With our children’s daily achievements no matter how big or small, let’s give them a refreshing reward such as serving them the Fruitsarap goodness of Tang.  They will surely love its juicy goodness.

Together with the fruit power of Tang Fruit drinks, let our children shine and show how their little steps can transform into big strides; how these kids’ greatness can make them heroes as they make a difference with Tang.
