WednesdayTip - Savings:

Children need to understand that savings only increases if money is managed very well. This lesson helps them to learn how money grows when it is saved or invested, rather than when it is spent without keeping some aside. Money should be saved before spending; this is why parents must teach their children to save money religiously.

Wants VS Needs: It is assumed that every adult knows the difference between wants and needs, but not all children know that. In teaching kids about money, you need to let them know that the most important thing is to cover their needs, and then if there is extra money left, they can attend to some of their wants. If children are taught this lesson at an early stage, then they are less likely to go on a shopping spree on pay day when they start earning salary. They need to first sort out their needs, make a budget, save and plan before buying anything they want. A practical way to do this is to tell them to make two lists; the first should contain items they need urgently, and the other list should be for the things they want. You will be surprised at how quick they identify the main difference between wants and needs.
