Road to Financial Freedom

  “Spendthrift” is my mom’s mantra for how she handles money. As soon as she started giving me monetary money when I was in 6th grade, she would tell me not to spend everything, especially on the things that I do not need. Thanks to my mom, I learned how to save in a piggy bank early on. But as I grow up, things change. I learned that to live a decent life, we need to work hard for the life that we want. But being a nurse in my country, the salary is not enough to feed our family let alone live a comfortable life. I have three children and pets at home. To sustain all our needs, I need to find ways how to earn in addition to what my husband is earning. I started to find ways how to earn passive income and a steady stream of income.

But then, it was time to teach them the value of sharing. Whenever I decide to buy them something, I would only buy one and talk to both of them and tell them about sharing. At first there will be crying mode and fight in between but later on, I would find them sharing and playing with each other without fighting.

Just this morning I found them sharing a pad of stickers and each of them are sticking it one by one on each other's arms without crying and fighting. I also constantly remind them to share food and toys. 



How about you? How do you teach your kids the value of sharing?
