You can find serenity in learning how to show your children love. Children are funny. No matter what we do for them, no matter what sacrifices we make for their benefit, if we deny them a cookie before dinner, they feel unloved. We must find ways to show our children love in ways they understand and appreciate. Recently I asked one of my young daughters what was her favorite thing about me. For the few seconds while I waited for her response my mind wandered. I thought bout the myriad of things she and I did together over the course of her life. I thought about the countless things I have done to make her happy. The answer she gave never crossed my mind.

It is fantastic to know that you can teach your children the value of money by giving them a job. In many families, children think that the word MOM is an acronym for Made of Money. It is easy to understand why they think this. Mom and Dad supply all their needs and many of their wants. Food, clothing, shelter, technological gadgets, toys and all kinds of delights land at their feet with seemingly no effort at all. Children often grown up thinking that being given all they desire is their due. In fact it is not, children, like adults, need to work for what they receive. One of may favorite ways to describe this is the expression, “Game is sold not told. Fair exchange is not robbery.” In other words everything has a cost. Paying for things is fair and reasonable.
A great way to teach children the value of money is to give them jobs where they earn money that they can use to buy what they want. When children have to work for the money the spend they learn several valuable lessons. These lessons include the following:
1. Money is finite
2. If you buy one thing, you must sacrifice another
3. Some things are more valuable than others
4. Things worth having are worth waiting for More »

You can find serenity in teaching your kids some new tricks. At the beginning of each school year, parents think of all the things their children will learn in school over the course of upcoming year. Undoubtedly parents are thinking about math, science, language arts, music and reading. However, there are many more lessons that parents must teach their children. Many things parents teach their children are things that the parents have learned on their own over the course of their lives and found important enough to pass to the next generation. Think about all the things you teach your children. Many of the things we teach our children are things our own parents taught us. Other things we teach our children are things we have learned at school. Still other things we learned by reading books. More »
