Kids & Money – Teaching Skills for Life!

When we think of teaching our kids life skills, I think the furthest thing from most of our minds would be ‘finances’.  Aren’t life skills things like  swimming, cleaning, cooking, etc.? Teaching our children  about how to earn money, save money & spend it,  is a skill that they will use for life.

When kids are encouraged to create their own money from their passions, gifts and abilities; they are empowered and it gives them a sense confidence. They are then given a self-esteem boost when they are able to apply the skills they’ve learned in their own life.

Here are some on-line resources that can help you get starting. www.teachingchildrenaboutmoney.com; www.moneysmarts4kids.com; www.moonjar.ca
