We all have financial goals in life, however some do not know how to achieve them. Teach your kids about financial goals and financial plans. By making short-term and long-term financial goals, plans can then be created to reach those goals. For example a new video game system may be on the wish list.
Questions to ask are:
How much will it cost?
How much can we save at a time?
How many months do we have to save for it?
Teach your kids how setting financial goals is a skill they will be using throughout their lives. They will most likely be doing this for purchase of a car, vacation, holiday presents, home purchase and retirement.
