"Wonderful lesson. Mine is 3 and I don't think she understands the concept of money yet. Not sure how to introduce it. I was thinking of paying her for household chores like washing dishes, watering the garden, tidying up etc"
"This is a good foundation. May I suggest that you also ask him to journal this experience. What lessons has he observed and what challenges he faced, was he ever tempted to take something out. Years later he might reflect on these lessons and still find them as relevant then"
"Brilliant! You’ll never regret this, you are doing good"
"Well done! Did the same with my little one! So fulfilling will be opening a TFSA for him. He will thank me later. Also thanks @ImcocoMash for the financial literacy content!"
