Kids are tricky beasts. Not only do they need food and shelter, but then you have to figure out how to raise them in a way where they’re not the kid that everyone talks about behind your back. Our goal was always to raise kids who are intelligent, caring, compassionate, savvy, and well-adjusted.
Since money savviness is kinda my thing, we’ve worked really hard to build the capacity to understand money in our kids from a very young age. Every trip to the bank or credit union had some discussion points and questions asked — essentially turning every swipe of a credit or debit card into a teaching opportunity for our kids.
I did a TED talk about it recently that you can view HERE. Please leave a comment and a thumbs up if you dig it.
In the meantime, take a listen to the podcast about allowance and how we handle that in our home.
