  1. We’ve been paying our son an allowance for his “wants” in addition to expecting him to do chores around the house. We’ve talked some about finances–especially in the “don’t make the mistakes we did” category–but I’d like to get him started on making smarter decisions. My family never talked about finances; I wish I’d known about serious saving, especially while I was single and making more money than I needed.


  2. My son has a bank account for saving some of his birthday/Christmas money. He sees the household expenses occasionally and understands some of the problems of being in debt, but it’s not complete. His math skills are weak. I’m sure this course would help.


  3. Our kids work in our family business and get paid for their work. They are allowed to spend their money but they have to pay tithing and save some in the bank.


  4. Getting them their own bank accounts, seeing us limit our spending, talking about principles like paying off CC debt each month


  5. Our family talks about personal finances and responsibility. It would be great to have a structured way to present the material to them!


  6. First we have instilled a good work ethic in our boys. Our first began “working” at 11 and is now successful at 22, building his own home (no college). Our youngest began working last year at 14. You need to make money in order to manage it! Thank you for the opportunity.


  7. Our children each have their own savings accounts and we use the cash envelope system in our home. Our children are excited to follow us on our journey to becoming debt free. We also have open family discussions about finances and saving.


  8. We teach financial responsibility with our younger children by having them earn points that they use to pay for privileges at home (such as screen time or treats), or that they can convert into real money to buy something. Our older children always pay tithing first on money they earn, then never buy anything until they have enough to pay for it in full. Avoiding debt is our family culture, but they could use some more in-depth instruction into the hows and whys of the financial world and how to manage money on a higher level.


  9. We stive everyday to teach our children how to be good stewards of what God gives us. We encourage them to save money for things they want. When the receive money they put 1/3 in their save, 1/3 in their spend and 1/3 in their give. They are learning how to save for their future, buy things they want to have but have to wait on and to give to others because they have been blessed.


  10. We helped our boys, ages 12 and 14, start a pet sitting business and a handy man business. They give, save, spend (10-10-80) and take half of the 80 (spend) to set aside for reinvesting in their business.


  11. I give my kids chores and I pay them based on the number of chores they complete. The kids have three mason jars with kids and they are each labeled. One is labeled “savings”, one is “tithe to God”, and one is “spending”. When I pay them, we put 10%in tithe jar. 20% in savings jar and the rest in spending. Every month or so we deposit the savings money into their savings account at the bank.
