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.

My son and his guitar, making beautiful music

My youngest son’s summer music lessons have been a successful fulfillment in his desire to learn how to play the guitar. A recital after a month’s session has proven that his skill in taking on this musical instrument has dramatically improved, as he does not only learn how to strum the guitar but also can read notes and chords. Because he wants to learn more, he asked me and his dad’s permission if we will allow him to continue with his guitar lessons on a weekend basis as school year is about to begin by first week of June. Naturally, we said yes, we want him to hone his talent and skill in guitar playing but in one condition that he will also make good in his academic performance as well. Automatically, he answered it’s a deal so we enrolled him again for another set of guitar sessions and made arrangements with his weekend schedule.

Earl’s Music Learning Center is the music school wherein my son, Yahmir took his summer guitar lessons. It is administrated by two young entrepreneurs - a husband and wife tandem both graduates of Conservatory of Music in the University of Santo Tomas. What makes this music learning center special is that they teach and handle their students on a one-on-one basis, with recorded evaluation reports for parents to know the standing of their children in learning their field of interest in music. Aside from rendering quality education in music, they also offer affordable packages to choose from.

Last March 27, 2013 EMLC 4th Music Recital 2013 was held at the Capitol City Baptist Church in West Avenue Quezon City. We were so happy and honored that Yahmir was one of the recitalists. He played his piece I’ll be there from the motion picture Friends.


Below is my son’s performance. Enjoy watching!


  1. Congratulations Yahmir! Hope one day you and RJ can play together. She loves music as much as you do. :)
