Why do Kids Need Personal, Life, and Social & Financial Skills? The Value of Financial Skills

Why do Kids Need Personal, Life, and Social & Financial Skills? The Value of Financial Skills

Being financially literate is a skill that most schools in the K-12 grade levels do not make a priority. When we speak of someone being financially literate, we are acknowledging their abilities in making effectively informed decisions about the use of money. Why do children need to have this skill? Isn't this one of the many responsibilities assigned to their parent(s)? Actually, financial education is important for a child to know, because of their parent’s role as primary financier for the family. If children understand the value of money, as well as how hard it is to earn, they will respect their parents and understand the need for budgeting. When your child learns about finances, they learn about earning, spending and saving money. According to Government statistics the amount people are saving is very low; and it has not been this low since the Great Depression over seven decades ago.…

Presents for baby that mom will appreciate

Presents for baby that mom will appreciate

The gift for the newborn is quite a challenge. If we are experienced parents we have at least some idea what a newborn or / and a newly bred parent may need. If we do not have children ourselves, it is harder for us. You have to be very careful not to duplicate things. It's kind of like a wedding - no one wants to end up with two microwaves - in this case we do not want three educational mats for example.  If we want to buy something from the list of necessities, it is worth asking if parents are already in possession of this thing. If you want to buy something "big", such as a feeding chair, you should consider not only the fact that parents already have it, but also that they have the ability to have their own taste. So what to buy? What presents to get newborns this year - check…

Settling you baby to sleep: It's amazing how we try too hard isn't it???? lol!Fran's basket is on a rocking stand so if she doesn't settle within a few minutes I just reach out and rock her gently without turning the light on just to calm her down a bit.I find the less interaction I have with her the better and it's amazing how quickly she nods off once the lights go out.We started putting her up to bed on her own last Tuesday and using the monitor rather than taking her up when we go up and because she can self settle we have had no problems so far. It's just taking things one step at a time - we are attempting dream feeding too in the hopes she will eventually start sttn - she goes a bit longer each night so fingers crossed!!
