To manage money, one requires control over habits, planning and understanding of priorities. Despite high paying packages and handsome salaries, many adults find themselves in credit traps and bankruptcy. In times when economies plummet to the whims and fancies of a few, it is important to teach your child money management and its value at a very young age.
This job also teaches rebellious teenagers the duties of a parent and they reverse roles for a while. Interaction with kids younger than your own age, allows you to relive those moments of naive laughter. And what could be a better way of going back to those and getting paid for it too?!
Toys, books, clothes and other miscellaneous items that are lying around in your child's room, can be a lesson in disguise. Ask your child to collect all the items that have to be discarded. Put up a garage sale and make money out of it.
Make a weekly publication, so that they have time to pool in their articles. If you have free time on hand, help them with getting pictures, layout of the paper and advertisement. Jobs as such can actually help a child to get an insight into a real life career at a young age.
