“Have YOU Revealed The Genius That Is Already In Your Child?”

Monday, October 6th, 2008

“Give me a fish and I eat for a day. Teach me how to fish and I eat for a lifetime.”

Have you ever read the Aesop’s fable, “The Peasant and the Apple Tree”? The moral is that true value is sometimes hidden. Sometimes your children’s interests, their talents or their abilities are absolutely hidden … and you need to reveal them. All of us are a genius in one way or another.

OK, let’s look at 4 ways that will help you uncover those ‘hidden’ talents of your children… (more…)

“Parents! Be Careful! Your Children Are Intently Watching and Listening”

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

Parents, you know that you are an instant mentor to your kids. Your kids and other kids are watching you and listening to you. So too are the kids who are in your circle who actually look up to you.

We all know that it’s important to set yourself up so that the lessons that you are teaching your children are firstly, not negative ones. You, or maybe some parents you know, might be saying,

“I don’t know how to teach this stuff…how to balance a checkbook….I don’t know how to do …….. The one stress that I have in my life is (more…)

“How Allowances & Financial Intelligence Give Your Child Control”

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

If you give your children an allowance, they will
become more self-reliant and responsible …and
develop some simple, powerful money habits.

The topic of “Allowances” mostly causes some debate with parents and their children. (Probably not as much the “Bailout” one in Congress and ‘Main Street’, thank goodness)

Anyway, allowances can either a good thing or a bad thing. It all depends on how you, the parent, use it…and what experiences your child has with their allowances.

Here’s what I invite you to do:

  • Give your kids an allowance where they are learning to save, (more…)

“Financial Board Games + Mentors = Fun + Success + Less Challenges”

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

To raise a smart rich kid, you absolutely have to watch what you DO with money, what you SAY about money and from the EXPERIENCES you’re providing your children with regard to money.

This post is the fourth tip in ” Vital Steps To Raise  A Smart Rich Kid”. Previously I covered, Don’t Use This Vital Step, Oh NO! I Didn’t Say Or Do That! and Develop Your Child’s Belief System,

Have you put them into action?  Did you make a comment or share them with someone else? They are useful, aren’t they?

So, firstly, let’s now look at the value of playing financial board (more…)

“Develop Your Child’s Belief System So They See People Differently”

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

Many of us are aware that wealthy people think differently about money. They see opportunities. The rich don’t go and get a job, do they?

How can you mentor your kids to develop their own belief system?

Here’s what I invite you to do:

  • Research the differences between rich people and poor people.
  • Dare to dream – BIG ones
  • Visualise what you intend to have and create it
  • Set compelling goals
  • Plan how to achieve those Specific, Measurable, As if, Realistic and Timeframe goals. …and then
  • TAKE ACTION

Ok, you know how it is…

Let’s Talk…

What do you do with your kids to develop their belief system? Let us know by leaving a comment. You will be helping others as well by doing so.

“Oh NO! I Didn’t Say Or Do That”

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

If you are an example to your children, then they can have abundance, success and wealth!

So, what’s new, Terry? That is nothing new! So true.

Let me say this…Our kids often end up doing things exactly like they saw us doing or what they heard us say….why wouldn’t they? We are their instant mentor…their role model.

Ok, just for the fun of it, (I’m into fun)…just for today –

Here’s what I invite you to do:

  • Listen to the words you use with your children eg “We can’t afford that”
  • Have conversations about money; involve them in the decision making process eg planning a vacation.
  • Provide experiences that teach them about using money in a positive way.

Now it’s Let’s Talk time.

What words have you heard someone come out with to their kids? Maybe that person is you? Do you involve your kids in discussions about money? What experiences do you give your children?

Go ahead…Leave you comment..love to hear what you have to say/ do/ the experiences
