Teaching Your Kids Saving Smarts

4/3/2018

For the responsible adult who thinks about being prepared for the future, savings are a fixed expense that is built into the monthly budget just like car payments and insurance. For most people, though, this habit does not come naturally. It needs to be acquired and practiced. Teach your kids those saving smarts now when they’re young to help make it a lifetime habit they’ve already mastered by the time they hit their 20s. 

This month’s goal: Give your kids a clear understanding of why saving is crucial to financial wellness and how to make it happen. 

Pointers to cover: 

  • Why putting money aside each month is crucial
  • How interest and compound interest work
  • Long-term vs. short-term saving
  • Reasons to save

Conversation starters 

For kids under age 9: 

  • Let’s say you’ve only got $15 and you want to buy a drone that costs $65. You get $5 a week as your allowance. How can you buy that drone?
  • When did you wait for something and find that it was more enjoyable because you waited for it?
  • Can you think of some things that Mom or Dad saves up for?
  • If you earn $0.10 for every dollar you save, how much money will you earn by putting  away $5?

For kids over age 9: 

  • Are you saving up for anything important?
  • Can you think of some things that Mom or Dad saves up for?
  • Have you ever had to pay for something unexpected? How did you come up with the money?
  • Some things we save for are short-term goals, and others are long-term goals. Can you name some of each kind of goal? How will we save differently for each kind?
  • Do you think it’s smart for Mom and Dad to keep money they’re saving under the mattress? Why or why not?

Your Turn: Do your kids spend their allowance, chore money and money they earn from odd jobs as soon as they have it? Or do they save up for larger purchases?

Hello I was in search of an urgent help with my credit because I want to purchase a house for me and my families I was in the hospital due to dehydration about 2years ago that caused my credit to drop and I got a lot of bills on my record like rent and utilities bills and all of my credit cards were getting behind including the payment history, derogatory marks and hard inquiries all these made my score to drop to 510 I was confused on what to do then I meet this guy HACKNET on a credit blog with great reviews on how he has helped a lot of people with their poor credit so I text him with his direct number (949) 397 8437 for help after a little discussion with him to my greatest surprise he got my credit fixed permanently within a couple of days with everything clean up including my credit card debts with the little amount I gave him.

My name is Hibbert Davidson, I’m so delighted because I never believed I could get rid of the negative items (Eviction, collections, late payments, medical bills and student loan) recorded on my credit report. Couple of months ago I contacted some credit repair company (Lexington law, online impostors) after paying a nonrefundable deposit service charge, they could barely delete any items from my credit report. I became troubled and decided to express my feelings to my colleague at work who referred me to a credit expert called HACKNET I contacted him on HACKNET567@GMAIL.COM/ 949 397 8437. I explained my problems to him and I gave him a try and the job was done neatly, he raised my credit score to a high 820 now I can apply for anything. He can fix Chex system and a DUI report as well. I believe most of you have credit issues and would probably consider this opportunity.

Credit Improvrment
11/21/2020 6:35 PM Mia B. from phoenix, AZ
I had a poor credit which was largely due to identity theft, I needed a loan to finance my business but could not get one because my credit was not just good enough, after trying everything things went from bad to worse, the more I disputed the lower my credit score went. This continued till a Pal introduced me to Lanx Credit Solution. I explained my position and they assured me that they could help me put things in order by fixing my credit and increasing my score. They kept their words, I am still in awe. I now have a credit score of 782, all the negative items that bedeviled my credit were removed finally. It was good one. Get to them on Lanxcreditsolution@gmail.com, text/call (214) 888 9709.

CREDIT FIX
11/9/2020 8:01 PM Jasper R. from Dallas, TX
I went through divorce recently and let my wife and kids stay in our marital home for a year before we sold it. During that time, I provided her with enough money each month to pay the mortgage and some bills. She unfortunately made several late payments even though she had the money. I was now unable to obtain a mortgage because no lender would work with me even though I had zero debt so I needed an expert that will help me fix my credit so I can be qualified for a mortgage. My uncle told me about a Credit Company that helped him remove medical bills and raised his score to 791 in 4days. I emailed them on RAPIDCREDITREPAIRS@GMAIL.COM and they responds quickly after texting (415) 754-7204. Well I did and eventually got started with the project with them. I was amazed after 4days on how they pulled through for me and removed all my late payments, raising my score to 799. I got the mortgage and all thanks to RAPID and their team for helping me. Contact them with the above email and number.

I’m Carol Adams. I saw someone on Kabbage INC recommend HACKNET CREDIT SPECIALIST. My husband and I were both in need of fixing our credit. We had several loans we are joint on that and have late payments reported, we couldn’t afford to pay off these loans. We tried other services in the past and didn’t really help but after making several researches about HACKNET we dived into him and explained our problems to him. In just less than 7days our credit were fixed and all debts cleared and scores rose to 785 and 800 respectively. All thanks to HACKNET. You can write him on + 1 (949) 397 8437 or mail him via HACKNET567@GMAI.COM for your credit repair services. Thanks

I can’t forget 760 Plus Credit Score in haste. My husband declared bankruptcy 3 years ago and we just found out the mobile home we live in was included. We couldn’t get a mortgage until it is off our credit report. We have great references from our mortgage bank in writing. We couldn’t do anything until after we encountered 760pluscreditscore@gmail.com / +1(304) -774 -5902 on a blog. Today we are in a house of our own, all negative items removed and score increased from 430 to 780. Thanks guys.
