One of our goals in parenting is to teach our kids to be fiscally responsible. Teaching our kids to start savings, to tithe, not to buy anything they can’t afford (i.e. don’t use credit unless you can pay for it like cash), how to live within their means and price compare.
Recently I let the boys make their first purchase. I gave them each a dollar and they bought some clearance markers at the office supply store. They were excited to carry their package and money and wait in line.
It’s so fun to see them hit these little milestones where they learn something new.
P.S. when we were paying Landon asked, “Mom, if I give him my whole dollar, how am I going to have money left to give to Jesus?” It made me smile to hear him already understanding tithing and what it means to return his tenth to Jesus.
