It’s one thing to work on being responsible and frugal with your hard earned money — but it’s quite another (and sometimes harder!) to teach your kids the value of a dollar and the power of savings.
Enter: Piggy Bank Book! This short little tool helps parents sit down with their kids each week and show them how to track their money and spending. Simplified cute and kid-friendly weekly ledgers are interspersed with three suggested parent/child activities to bring home the cost of common expenses vs. more frugal alternatives, such as going out to eat vs. buying ingredients and making the same meal at home, and the book ends with opening a savings account and a way for kids to track what they are saving for and gifts they want to give.
If you have trouble talking with your kids about money or getting them to understand its worth, the Piggy Bank Book can help you help your child develop healthy spending habits to take them into adulthood. The ledger pages should just take a few minutes a week, and the activities can be scheduled whenever you have time to do them together.
Find out more about Piggy Bank Book on their official web site, their Facebook page, their twitter feed, or on Instagram. The book is short, but that’s probably a good fit for younger kids’ attention spans.
