One of Our Greatest Responsibilities As a Parent is to Teach our Children About The Value Of
By teaching your children to save & spend money wisely you will be
preparing them for the future (no matter what is happening in current world markets) - and ensure that they
ultimately become financially secure

Although my father is an accountant, as I was growing up I was never taught the first thing about money. I often
heard those familiar words: “Money doesn’t grow on trees” or “I’m not, made of money".
It's funny how as parents, we don't generally think to teach our children one of the most important lessons
in life, which is to givie our children a financial education.
Is it that we don't quite understand ourselves, or is it one of those taboo subjects like the
dreaded "sex" talk?
For one reason or another it rarely crosses our minds to talk to our children about the value of money. Perhaps
we think it is a subject they will get taught at school.
On that note, do you really want a teacher who is struggling financially themselves to be teaching
your children about money?
I Wish My Parent's Taught me About Money.
As I stated earlier, my father is an accountant. Now as much as I love and respect my father, I very much wish
he had a greater interest in my financial education as I was growing up. To be honest I never had any
real guidance at home when it came to finances
That said, we did have some unique opportunities to earn money through one of my father’s clients, so we
often were able to earn a hundred dollars within a single week. Unfortunately, we just as quickly spent most of it.
You could say We had more dollars than
By the time I was 18, I had managed to get myself into about $10,000 in debt, with basically nothing to
show for it. Like so many others I got caught in the credit card trap, spending most of my money on pleasures,
such as the movies, or dinner at a fancy restaurant. I honestly had no idea
about the value of money.
How I Slowly Turned My Life Around
It wasn’t until I started going out with the girl who is now my wife, that I was able to dig myself out of my
debt. And in the process learn many lessons about money and goal setting.
It took me a few years, but I managed to get myself back on track, and to a point where I could start looking
forward to a positive future. To dig myself out of the mire I was in, I had to learn such skills as goal setting, intelligent spending & delayed
It was during this time that I became determined not only to never return to that path, but to also be
actively involved with my own children’s financial upbringing (when
I eventually had kids).
A few years later, I had the unfortunate experience of losing my mother to cancer. Now I had not seen my mother
for a number of years as she lived halfway across the country.
The day I was due to fly up to see her and to say my final goodbyes, I go a phone call to say that she had
passed away early that morning.
I decided I would still make the trip (about a 3 hour flight) and help a couple of my brothers take care of
the final arrangements. Part of this was to box up what remained of her possesions.
I was shocked to see the poverty my mother died in. The place was a dump! It stank of smoke & looked as
though the place had been taken over by drug addicts or something.
You could say it was a turning point in my life. I knew I would never want to end up like that myself, but also
I had to also make sure that my children understood what could happen if they neglected their financial
When I got back home, I came across the book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. This
was the first step to putting myself on the path to a solid financial education.
Since that time I have studied many financial books & concepts, most of which are targeted at "Getting Rich"
either through the Share Markets, Property or Business. But very few of them simply discuss the importance and
value of money, especially in ways that my kids could understand.
Having three children of my own, I wanted to be able to help them to understand the value of money, without getting bogged down in ways to make
I personally believe it is far more important for them to understand the value of money, than it is for them to
learn ways to earn it. Because if they start earning it before they value it, they will simply waste it.
This can be seen in many adults, who win the lottery & then within a couple of short years they have lost it
all. (And quite often, worse off than before they won the money).
Through years of research & personal experience, I have been able to not only teach my own children
about money, but I have also made it fun for them along the way, which as you know is the best way for children to
Every Child is Different
As a parent who has three children, I have found their mindset's aout money to be completely
My oldest son's attitude towards money is, "I have got $10. What can I buy?", while the younger two would think
"I have got $10. Now if I buy that toy for $7, I will only have $3 left..."
By teaching my children the value of money, through a series of
easy steps & activities, such as goal setting, & a few real life scenarios, I have managed to help
them adjust their mindset's in regards to money.
Using the experiances and lessons I have learnt from teaching my own children, I have compiled these
concepts into a simple and easy to understand plan for Teaching Children About Money that you
can also use to help your children take charge of their financial destiny.
Now available to you in an illustrated e-Book format:
"Teaching Children About Money"
If you want to save your own children from much of the heartache that so many other people go through
daily, and obliterate wasteful spending from their lives forever, then you need to know how your kids can
benefit from the techniques you'll learn in this e-book.
Within the pages of this ebook you will begin to understand how you can also give your children the right
financial foundations and give then a healthy understanding about the vlaue of money, which will in turn help
them to become financially secure in the future.
Understanding basic money concepts is the first step to children being
able to really understanding the building blocks for their financial future.
Children often have a hard time .........
- Learning to Identify Money. - Understand the difference between the different types of coins &
- Learning to Count Money - Most young children don't understand that sometime more equals less.
- Learning to Make Change - Teach them if they spend some money they will only have so much left.
Children don't know the differences between cost and value which is the
fundamental starting point for them being able to make their own purchases
Children should be taught....
- The difference between a Sale and a Bargain - Just because something is on sale it doesn't mean it is
good value for money.
- What is a Bargain? - A sale item is only really a bargain if you need it. It is pointless buying something
you don't have a need for just because it is on sale.
- Identify true Bargains - Take your children shopping with you & spend time talking to them about what
is on sale.
- Necessities vs. Luxuries - Often your child's definition of a necessity is very different to our own.
Most Children As Well As Many Adult's Do Not Understand That It Is
Often Better To Give Than It Is To Receive.
A rather difficult lesson for kids is Giving & Sharing. Teach them to...
- Help Others in Need - We should be taught from a young age to share our good fortunes, be it our money or
- The Concept of Tithing - Giving back to your Community, Charity or to God.
- Disaster Relief - Even the smallest contribution goes a long way to helping others.
In addition you can:
- Share fun activities with your children that you both can learn from.
- Give your children a sound financial mindset to help them later in life.
- Perhaps be reminded of certain key concepts which can help improve your own financial mindset.
Imagine your parental pride, when your children start making
sound financial decisions because of what you have been able to teach them using the principles found throughout
In fact, I will go as far as saying your heart will fill with pride, when your kids come to you and tell you
that they now have so much money accumulating in their bank account, or they have enough money to buy something
that they have only ever dreamed of, and still have money left in the bank.
I must say, that my oldest son has managed to buy his own car and is now planning a trip to England, without
dipping into his savings because of the financial plans that we have put in place. I am so proud of him!
