Topic: CHILDREN IN FAMILY FINANCE
Text: Proverbs 22:6 KJV
6- Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
One important key to maintain adequate family finance is to encourage savings culture among every members of the family, that is, the father, the mother and the children should have savings.
When you train your children to save it:
* makes them responsible early in life
* relieves you of certain burdens from them (i.e they get some things themselves)
* encourage them to spend wisely.
When I was a growing up, my parents taught us savings culture, that at 8 years old, I bought Christmas clothes for myself from my savings, while my elder brother bought a local chicken with his savings which he reared and for more than a decade, my parents never spent their money to buy chicken either during easter, Christmas or new year festive seasons. Also in high school, my brother bought all text books he needed from senior school 1 to 3 from his savings without depending on my parents while I sponsored myself for extra tutorial coaching from senior school 1 to 3 from my savings. So I have learn early in life what it means to be responsible and not 100% dependant on my parents or other family members.
Dear parents, learn to have savings culture, train your children to do the same, monitor what they buy with their saving but don’t abuse their savings culture by borrowing it from them and refusing to pay it back. God bless you
* Father, help me to set my children on the right path of life in Jesus Name.
