Yesterday was a NSD!

May 19th, 2009 at 08:50 am

My daughter wanted to stop for Dinner after her LONG violin practice(3 1/2 hours getting ready for recital!). I told her I didn't have the money so we would have to wait until we got home! She volunteered to pay. I probably shouldn't have let her, but I thought it might be a learning lesson for her. Now she doesn't have as much money to take on vacation with her. Hopefully she will learn that spending now just because you have it isn't always the smart thing!

My son's checking account is up and running. I am very excited about being able to teach him this! I think he will do well.

    Dinner sounds like an excellent opportunity to teach your daughter about money management. She probably doesn't understand just how expensive eating out can be compared to eating at home.

    She does now! She chose Pizza Hut and took in $10. She had to make 2 trips out to the car to get more money out of her purse! LOL
