From Play Money to Real Finances
Before we used to play with Kuya Z’s play money and challenge coins. But now that he is getting older we are beginning to teach him about finances.
Kuya Z has been saving his real money in a piggy bank (literally – it’s a blue pig plastic coin bank). We have been teaching him the value of saving money and spending his money wisely. If you would ask him where he will spend his savings, he would answer that he will not be buying anything, instead he will save it until he grows up and use it for a very important thing. We are not sure what he wants to buy and I think even Kuya Z is not sure, but he does know that if he just spend his money on snacks or toys, he will lose them.
When he gets older, hopefully he will get wiser and will learn how to increase his finances and how to give back to God.
