Teachable Moment With Kids: Needs vs Wants

My kids and I have a lot of bonding moments at home, especially now that we are in the second year of this pandemic. They have seen its effects, the limitations, and the people that have been due to the virus. This season is also a perfect time to teach the kids financial literacy since our business is affected during this pandemic. Since they were young, I started teaching them about money. As a parent, it is one of the primary life skills children must learn at home to manage their liquid assets properly. Even in their younger years, I let them use their piggy bank. Any coin that they get changes from the food they buy. They already keep it in their piggy banks.  But how soon must we teach our kids proper money management?

Today : A Is Sick

Yesterday my little girl woke up calling “Boboy” instead of the usual “Mama”. Then, I went back to bed because I only got 3 hours of sleep then. But she continuously poked my eyes, which means, I have to get up and get going.

In the afternoon, I decided to give ‘em a little treat since it’s a weekend. We passed by the grocery and grabbed some ice cream. But, I noticed she has colds! Uh oh. An hour after, she’s feverish already and was already bothered by her colds. So I had to tuck her and make her sleep.

When she woke up from her nap, she was completely fine except she has runny nose and still feverish. But she still looks fine and was running around again in the living room. Then after dinner, I decided to give her medicines for her colds. It’s a struggle having to make her drink medicines. So I took out jellies and told her she can have one after drinking the meds. She was able to drink the two but the third one was a struggle. D was holding already the cup and tells her sister, “A, drink it it’s yummy.” But few minutes later, she went sick. I noticed her worrisome face as well as D. “Mama, A sick.” Uh oh. D was continuously convincing her sister to take the medicines to make her feel better. I was tad worried too at that moment but since D was showing compassion to her sister, I felt much better. The worries vanished in an instant.
