Should Children Get an Allowance?

We met a mom a few weeks ago who was telling us that her son and daughter started a dog walking business when they were young. Mom and dad taught the kids how to manage money wisely, and how to save. As the kids got older they took on more responsibility for their personal finances.

Their son is now graduating from college with no student debt. His entire college experience was funded by scholarships and money he saved. Even more amazing is that he has $100K in the bank as he graduates! What a wonderful way to get a head start in life.

This week the Compass Catholic podcast has ideas about how to train your kids to be financially responsible. If you don’t teach them when they are young, they will never learn as adults. Check out our blog for more on helping your children be financially responsible.

Birthdays on a Budget

Birthdays can be budget busters if you get carried away with an over the top party, tons of gifts and spending money instead of time with your child.

Don’t try to outdo the neighbors. Instead, make each birthday memorable by having special family birthday traditions, which will be cherished by your child much more than any birthday gifts they may receive.

The Compass blog has more on developing special birthday memories your kids will remember and pass on to their children.
