Tutoring in Troy Michigan

06/18/2015


Money appreciation is a trait that your child will organically acquire as they travel through their educational path, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t give them a head start.  In this post,  The Tutoring Center in Troy will give you some ideas on how you can incorporate your daily schedule into basic money and math help with practical examples.

Each time that you are running financial errands is a great opportunity to speak with your children about money. These short bursts of discussion can help your child correlate the lesson with the practical action.

The next time you’re at the grocery store, discuss with your child why you are making your choices.  If there is a sale on something that you don’t need right now, explain to them reasoning for purchasing the item now, to save money from next month’s budget.  Seeing their parent use a skill that they are teaching can give children confidence in what they are being taught, and encourage them to pay attention to this, and future lessons.

Saving it for later.

Kids want everything they see! That’s a given. But do they really need it? If your child has some allowance money and wants to buy a toy, have a conversation with them about whether the toy is likely to be cheaper in the near future, and balance it against whether they need the toy straight away.  

Similarly, this could also be a great opportunity to teach your child the value of comparison and shopping around. If you can, use the money they save by shopping around to buy something additional for the toy. If your child is able to visualize that they have more toys as a result of your teachings, they can value the lesson more.

Money appreciation is important for every parent, and being able to share your knowledge with your children alongside practical activities like this can be a great way for them to learn. To complement these basic practical skills, our experts can provide reading, writing, and math help through one-to-one instruction or private tutoring in Troy.
