Children Money Matters and Bank Accounts

Source: via Attila on Pinterest

 

Yesterday after school I took one of my daughters done to the bank to bank her fundraised money and also her cash from her business venture. Each of the children is getting better with understanding money and how the banking system works from a consumer perspective. Yesterday Angela was at ease as she banked her money and opened a new account for her business venture. Her business venture is making and selling hand knitted scarfs. She has made some very nice scarfs and is working on ways to promote and sell them. As we sat in the bank she (aged 10) was able to answer all the questions of the bank officer in order to open her new account. I was pleasantly surprised as I sat there and listened on. Certainty made for a proud dad.

After Angela conducted her business with the bank, we headed to the coffee shop around the corner for a cuppa and chat….. Quality Father-Daughter time….. I wish I had more time to spend with my Children; this is something that I will need to work on. However it was nice to sit and chat, even if we for a bunch of it we just sat there silently….. In a busy world how do we balance family and work?

  2. That is great, what you are doing with your children. If you don’t teach them about money no one else will. Thumbs up to you! 🙂

  3. Awesome! The entire outing, the cuppa & chat so sweet. You’re a great dad! Clearly you enjoy your children, you should have no regrets. When you love them as much as you do, you will find that there is never enough time to spend with them! At least that is what I have found!
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Wow, that’s a really nice bonding for father and daughter! I can relate. I’m lucky to be working from home, having much time to spend time with the kids. It still has a set of challenge also, though. Balancing work and family, that’s what I have been trying to do all my life but I stopped, cause it got the better of me. I guess, in my case, the important thing is to be responsive to whatever life would hurl at me. =>
