Money Matters

“Save your nickels and dimes.”

“Don’t spend it all in one place.”

“Money doesn’t grow on trees.”

All are words of wisdom that I recall my parents saying when I was a child.  However, I’m not sure that I really understood what money was all about when I was a kid.  I thought that my dad went to work everyday and literally made money.  I also thought that you could buy anything you wanted as long as you had a plastic card and said, “Charge it.”

How do you teach your kids the value of a dollar?
Do you make them earn money to buy special items?
Do you give them an allowance?
