I'm choosing to pass on what we know to our children.
Creating life changing, healthy impressions
into their minds, giving them
a good head start in life!
When it comes to your children you only want the best for them, as every parent naturally would.
What is best for them is what us as parents are educated with, what we know and how to apply it to our lives.
I'm now glad I can pass all my knowledge
and experiences on to my children.
Setting up healthy habits in their life, like cooking, giving, saving, being savvy, and spending wisely.
We love Scott Pape's books and I personally think everyone should read his books,
both The Barefoot Investor and The Barefoot Investor For Families.
Such a game changer!

> Search your local BSS (Buy Swap Sell)
> Buy from retailer: online, in store, or do your research where is cheap.
I got mine from Kmart for $19.
I did try my local BSS first, but I had no luck.
Every day, every step, each family dinner together
is a learning curve in our home.
Amazingly enough the kids learn more than you think they do;
they are like little sponges soaking up all the information
and experiences that you give them.
Most of the time our children don't learn life skills like this at school,
and we can't rely on others to teach them. We need to do that.
We need to equip our children with this knowledge so they will be financially independent
when they leave the nest. Too many of times I have seen families break,
because their children are still so dependent on them for money,
food, housing and so forth even late into adulthood.
How rewarding for you as a parent to equip your children with this knowledge, giving them
full confidence and control of their lives,
finances and every day expenses, even before leaving the nest.
We are hoping as parents if we get someone right, that we get this right!
As Scott mentions in his Barefood Investor Familes book:
"You can get many things wrong as a parent and that's okay.
You only need to get a few things right,
and this is one of those things"
It's the little things that add up!
The little things that count and the little things that make for big
things in time to come. Now that was a bit of a tongue twister!
Making Healthy Money Splurgers is my goal in my home.
