My kids love to see in black & white how much money they get a week. It Is very easy and simple to follow, which facilitates my task as “record-keeper”, and now I leave it to my kids to control their “finances”.
A lot of times when I talk to women about money and we talk about the history of their financial behavior the one reoccurring thing I hear is “growing up my parents never really taught me about money”. So I ask this, if you are a parent, and you have made it a point to build wealth, are you including your children in the process?
The Smayver Saver Journal is beautiful, fun and most importantly, it teaches children key concepts about money – All the things I’m trying to set as a foundation for my own kids.
Since the workshop I have been definitely more aware of the use of money in our household, this has reflected on my daughters. I have become more aware of money / saving and since the workshop I know my daughters have become more aware. They are using their Smayver Saver Journal, and keeping up with their chores. They enjoy pay day and counting their money.
The session had a lot of information so the handout has been good to refresh. Implementing a larger pocket money so then the kids can start saving and allows them more freedom in spending . I really liked the concepts discussed
“I like Smayver because you can earn lots of money and you know how much is in your bank account or money jar”.
The Smayver Saver Journal is a huge success. The kids love it and are so independently motivated!
