It’s a hard concept for many fully grown, functioning adults to grasp.
I know it was a hard lesson for me to understand even after “growing up” and starting a family.
Because of that, Joe and I have decided that it’s one of our priorities that we teach our girls the importance of money management, working hard for what they have, and learning how to patiently wait for what they want rather than impulse buying all.the.things.
You can imagine how well this is going over with our 8, 6, and 3 year old daughters.
To their credit, they are eager. They want to get the money and put it in the envelopes they made at church. It’s the working for it part that they are getting hung up on.
