Appreciation Costs Nothing
In a world where just about everything you do for your kids costs money, it's good to know it costs nothing to show someone that they are appreciated.
You may be surprised at how often you can choose to spend quality time with those you love, instead of money. The time you spend appreciating them for who they are will be remembered much more than any material gift you give them.
Make time each day just to be with the kids, and find something to praise them for.
Most parents recognise the importance of praising their younger children regularly to encourage good behaviour. Make sure you praise their new money behaviours as they develop too.
As kids get older, and become more responsible for their own behaviour, it's easy to forget to praise them. There will be so much more to pick up on as they develop their maths skills and apply these with money - correctly determining how many coins make a bigger amount, working out change etc. In the Kids Money Parent's Teaching Guides, you will find plenty of exercises to use to develop skills - remember to add your praise and encouragement.
