Money money money; The presence of a wound in the absence of a worry…
Recently we have been talking to everyone everywhere with our new money and new units that will enter our language. When I talked about it so often, I came to think of writing about money and children's interest in money. So over the past few days I looked at the children around me and found that they were quite knowledgeable about the money.
In fact, we do not think that children may have a lot to do with money at an early age, but children come across the concept of money in many experiences and as a result, they are introduced to this concept at a very young age. At a later age, the money spent behaviors have an important role to play in making children conscious about money in the future. If you want your children to behave in a positive way, you need to give them the message they need when they are young and you have to act within this framework.
What can you do?
? Instead of making various statements about spending money for your child, set an example. Consistent attitudes will prevent any explanation and will help you convey the message you want to your child. For example, if you don't want to buy your child a toy for any reason other than money, don't say yok we don't have money, so I can't buy you çünkü because every time you go out of that store, you will be a liar in your child's eyes and cause you to lose confidence.
? Encourage your child to save money. Buy her piggy bank or wallet. Tell him that he can save money and get what he wants and help him save money. For example, give him money on a given day of the week and repeat it for a few weeks. However, try not to keep this money saving period too long, because otherwise your activity will stop being educational for your child and become annoying.
? When you give money to your child, the amount of money is neither too much nor too little. For young children, quantity is not important, because they do not understand the difference because they do not have enough information about numbers, but for older children the situation will be slightly different. You should be more careful when you give them money because they understand better what money is what value. Giving them a lot of money may leave them with the problem of insatiability after a certain period of time.
? Teach your child to share his / her money. If your child has a sibling, make sure that he or she can share the money or something he / she receives with it.
? You can let him experience the responsibility for using money when doing a few daily activities. For example, when buying newspapers or bread, you can make him do the shopping and help him to realize that responsibility. But do not forget the risk of the child losing money while doing these activities, do not take it upon him to do so (if he feels intensely guilty, he may lose his self-confidence), but warn the next time not to repeat the same thing.
? You can give your child money to do a job. Repeating this, however, can have a negative impact on your child's development, so you need to be very good at what you do for money. For example, giving money to help you wash your car may not be a problem, it may even help to improve your self-confidence, but giving her money to brush her teeth will adversely affect her development because she will start to do her health for herself and develop the idea of keeping money above some things. .
