Set a good savings example!

by Snezana

I'm slightly younger, but had the same start with a bank book. We would contribute weekly at school with our spare change. But this didn't happen when my girls started school so I tried to instill this method myself. I saved $20 per fortnight for each child from their birth and now me eldest who is 22 is going to use the money as a deposit for her first home. I believe as a parent you need to model good behaviour and that teaches your children more than what you say. I have shown them it takes patience, time and planning to achieve what you want in life. In our immediate satisfaction world, these values have been forgotten.
