Children Money Matters and Bank Accounts
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?
