I’m doing webinars all this week over at The Schoolhouse Expo and today’s topic is Fiscal Fitness for Kids. Those of you who get my Digests are familiar with the Tightwad Training Camp article that we include in each issue. It’s so important for our kids to learn to handle money wisely, that I want to make teaching that as easy as possible. Thus, each Digest contains a hands-on money related project for parents to work through with their children.
In today’s talk I mention the importance of teaching children to save. Developing the character quality of being able to delay gratification and give up something small in lieu of something greater in the future is of utmost importance. Not just as it relates to finances, but as part of becoming a responsible adult.
A few weeks ago I came across another of Tip Junkies wonderful printables that I wanted to share with you, to help your children in this area. By simply taking some canning jars and labeling themSpend, Save, Give (with these great tags!) you’ll be off to a great start on the road of Fiscal Fitness Training.
See, how simple was that?
