Teaching Your Kids About Money

PWP 20 | Teaching Your Kids About Money

 

Teaching Your Kids About MoneyIt’s a strange world we live in when you can attend school every day for nearly a quarter of your total life span and never learn about how to manage money effectively.
That is the situation, and thus it’s up to parents to take the lead on educating their kids on money matters.
This can create a really uncomfortable situation, however. There are still many taboos surrounding money which can be difficult to navigate. Not to mention that if you haven’t answered every financial question you have for yourself (and who has?) you might not feel confident in trying to answer questions about money for your kids.
April is financial literacy month and thus today’s episode is about closing out the month of April by having a talk with your kids about money. No matter their age, they can benefit from starting this discussion with you today!
But we aren’t going to let you go it alone! In this episode we detail the 3 areas of money literacy to focus on when talking money with your kids. We also give you the details of the allowance plan we have rolled out for our 5 year old boys this week.
All of this to get your mind percolating about how to approach your own kids with this touchy topic. After all, the sooner you begin the conversation, the greater your kids understanding and success with financial matters later in life!

Easier Mornings

You’ll probably find that you need to get a lot of new things you never needed before you had a kid. High chairs, sippy cups, a device to hang your baby on the wall of public bathroom stalls.

You know, just some basics.

But one thing you can usually get rid of is your alarm clock.

Not only will most kids wake you up at the crack of dawn, they will also be more than happy to introduce a thousand new roadblocks to actually getting out the door.

Does this sound familiar?

Then this week’s episode was created for you!

Listen to learn some simple actions you can take to transform your daily morning beat-down into something peaceful, kind and efficient.

Impossible? Listen to our own examples from our morning of waking up with two 5 year olds and a 9-month old baby and how we transformed our routine into something successful and repeatable!
