  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.

Finding the excellent tutor for your child

Does your child really require a tutor? Does he always struggles with homework and experience difficulty in learning his Math or English even after you repeatedly help and aid him in his lessons? As parents, we do not want our child to fall way behind the class and never recover so the easiest way to solve this problem is by hiring a tutor.



Hiring a tutor involves financial commitment, an added cost on the family budget. So it is important to find an experienced, caring and certified tutor who will best qualify to meet your child’s unique needs – his learning style and temperament. 


You may ask your child’s school if they recommend individual tutors or ask other parents, family and friends  who have experience in hiring tutors.

It is advisable to look for a tutor with experience teaching children the same age as your child but before hiring a prospective independent tutor require a list of references from her previous employers and students that can help you evaluate her qualifications and personality as well.

If you opt to consider tutorial centers, ask first about the credentials of their tutors, the number of tutoring sessions including the package or per session payment  and if they will assign a specific tutor for your child as some commercial tutoring program assign a different tutor for every session – which is not good in my own perspective.

It is important to request for an assessment and progress updates on how well your child goes through each step of the tutoring program.
