Teach your Children how to Handle Money with these Easy Steps

Teach your Children how to Handle Money with these Easy Steps

It’s likely that your children don’t really have any concept of money because everything they need is provided for them by you, their parent. Even with items that they want like a new toy, or even a day out at Peppa Pig Land, the cost of everything is unlikely to enter their minds – and why should it? At a young age, children shouldn’t have to worry about how much things are costing you, or even worry about anything to do with money. However, it is important to begin introducing money handling into your child’s life so that when they are old enough to fly the nest, they know how to handle their finances and can avoid getting themselves into financial difficulty. Take a look at these easy ways of teaching your children how to handle their money.

Which I’m sure many other families are in the same predicament too. I have a feeling we are going to be here for a little while longer, and as bear is getting older, I don’t really want him to have the gross magnolia walls. I’ve been looking at new ways to try and alter the decoration in his room without getting into any trouble with the landlord.

Mummy, Please Can We Go on the Choo Choo?

Mummy, Please Can We Go on the Choo Choo?

Lately, little bear has been paying a lot of attention to the modes of transport around him. His speech isn’t too great but he definitely points out ‘cars’, ‘plane’, ‘choo choo’ and ‘toot toot (boat)’. I’ve been loving seeing him explore the world around him in this way and explaining to him where they’re going/what they’re doing. So obviously, it has made me think about taking him on a train again (we went once on the train to Southport with our friends Lisa & her little lady and once to Manchester which he loved both times). I’ve decided we should go on a train somewhere else, I think he would absolutely love it.
