The Solution is Within
We often discount our innate capacity to solve your own problems.
Life will throw curve balls along the way - for example - a lost job, inflation, death, or divorce can all disrupt your financial plan and at the time may seem insurmountable. Trust that you have the resources within to deal with your problems with confidence.
Encourage the kids to find their own solutions to their money problems - for example, what can they do if they can't afford something they want? They could go without, save more, do extra jobs to save more quickly, request it as their birthday present - see what solutions they come up with themselves.
The more internal resources a child has access to, the broader the range of possible solutions they have access to. The Kids Money 'Money Makes the World go Around' books and the 'Parent Teaching Guides' are written for kids aged 5-7, 8-10, and 11-12. Kids will learn about money and how to manage it through the stories, activities and games in these books, as well as by using the 'Money-Ed-Box'. The more they learn, the more internal resources they have.
