Assured parenting of teenagers: portion your teen appreciate what i cant come up with the money for it means - parenting


Because most teens have not had the encounter of being paid to the end of the money already the end of the month, the words, ``I can't find the money for it,'' have hardly or no meaning.

Here's what can come about in lots of homes:

``Mom, can I get a new (fill in the blank)?''

``No, honey, I'm sorry, but we can't allow it. ''

``But mo-mom. Every person else has one!''

``No, we can't find the money for it. ''

``But mo-mom, (lots of words connecting hassling and bugging). ''

``We can't find the money for it!''

Repeat this course a few times and here's what you get:

``Alright, you can have it, just this once. But don't ask for something else!''

Yeah, right.

What the kid learns is that what "we can't allow it" certainly means is I just haven't bugged and harassed enough.

Here's a very actual way to teach kids about money, where it all goes, and what ``we can't allow it'' actually means.

This one can work for kids middle-school age and above.

Parents, take your next pay envelope to the bank and have it cashed in all one dough bills. (The bank tellers are going to just love me!) Bring it home and call a category meeting. On the kitchen table, make a pile of all the ones. Then break free all the household bills into their own break free pile. For each bill, (house payment, car payment, braces, fitness insurance, stimulating bill, etc. ) count out the one buck bills and place them in the apt pile.

In this way, kids get to see a very clear visual adventure of where the money goes. It gives them a background for accepting "we can't give that right now. "

All of these suggestions and techniques serve to teach teens about the doing well management of money in their lives. Come to think of it, these suggestions could be convenient for grown-ups as well.
