Every parent wants the best for their child. Some authoritarian parents impose their will on what path the child chooses, others, liberal appropriate mothers and fathers, let the child choose.
In both cases, the only thing parents want is their child to be happy and successful in life.
One of the most valued qualities in our time is entrepreneurship and not in its economic sense, but in a much larger scale, giving the ability of a person to manage his life skillfully and successfully on his own. Wouldn't every parent want their children to grow up he althy, holding their lives in their own hands?
Financial literacy is important from an early age. Such is our modern age. How to raise your child to become a good future entrepreneur both in his personal and professional life?
Teach children from a young age how to handle money
It is good for children to be able to value money, to know the relationship between income, expenses and saving. Thus, they will begin to understand and respect the value of money. Financial literacy from an early age is built with simple money concepts, for example give a child small coins to make a small purchase.
Teach children economic concepts
Young children are able to grasp simple economic principles. As you grow, you can start introducing more complex financial concepts and mechanisms. Suitable games to encourage are the game of "adapted" money store, in which children reinforce economic concepts through play.
When the child says he wants to build a castle for his princess doll, don't stop him, on the contrary! Take this moment to explain what funds are needed to build a house. Help him figure out a way to find imaginary means, but be careful because the line with promoting mercantilism is thin.
If your child wants to earn money, have them write down some ideas outlining what they intend to do with the money. Then together, sit down and choose the best idea for which the money can be spent. Try to cultivate a sense of what is important and valuable, what the child will benefit from, and not just spending money randomly on unnecessary things.
Let the child make mistakes
If you interfere too much, the end result will be a child - a future adult who cannot make independent and adequate decisions about his own financial matters.
Let the child make mistakes even if you see him insisting on the implementation of a stupid idea. It will only be convinced of its mistake after seeing the end result.
Teach the child to be able to appreciate
Outline the steps by which the child will gradually learn to adequately value his possessions and intentions. Do this initially with his toys, and as the child grows up, mix in everything else that can be valued either monetarily or morally.
