Mom’s Corner: Kids & Money
The kids and I sorted and returned all of our beverage containers. We have a deal in our home that if the children help to sort and return the containers that they can split the money and we will not take a share. If the children want something that is over and above their basic needs, they need to purchase those items with their own money. Bottle recycling along with their bi-weekly allowence is how they currently choose to earn that money. Some of the major items the children have bought are C’s iPhone and R’s used dirt bike. We’re hoping that this will teach them how to save and be responsible with their money.
What kinds of things do you do with your children to learn about money or finance?
