I started getting an allowance when I started junior high, which is probably late by most standards. But it’s not like I had anything to spend it on since I was not allowed to LEAVE THE HOUSE except for school and piano lessons until then…
Any money received as gifts was hoarded away in a college fund, and everything I ever needed/wanted was given to me… or not. It was really up to my parents’ discretion or temperament at that very moment.
So when I started getting my weekly allowance in 7th grade, there had not been any talks prior to that point about managing money. Budgets. Planning ahead. Saving wisely. I suppose this was all something that I was expected to learn on my own, and I did…
barely eventually. However, I’m still not very good at it.
So naturally, I want to do a better job of sending my kids into the world with a firm understanding of how to earn, spend, save, and give wisely. The trouble is… HOW? Where to begin?
I found the answer with Virtual Piggy.
