Paying children to perform chores will teach them financial responsibility

It’s no secret that children learn financial habits from their parents.  When you complain about not having money so does your children.  In order to break the cycle, it’s time to teach children proper financial responsibility.  

One of the best way you can teach your children about money is to:

1. Assign chores.

2. Pay them for the chores.

3. Allow them to keep a percentage.

4. Deposit the rest into a savings (whether it’s the bank or a jar).

Another best practice toward educating your children about money is to lead by example.  Let your children:

1. See you organize your bills according to due dates.

2. Create a budget plan.

3. Discuss the importance of paying bills on time.

4. Earmark your savings for a specific goal.

More importantly, don’t argue about your finances or lack of in front of the children. You want them to know the truth about the dollar, but not the stress that you may be under.
