The entrepreneurial spirit is not peculiar to the adults alone. There is so much value in teaching our kids to be skill-oriented. With the way the world is changing and the drastic alacrity in the cost of living, the value of teaching our kids a skill cannot be over-emphasized.
Engaging our kids in a skill could help them mentally and open them to learn how to be save their money. They could begin to practice the act of saving by keeping every money they get in their piggy bank.
An example, the girl below is a thirteen year old high school girl, during the vacation, she learned how to make beaded bangles and some bangles she customized them based on her clients demand. She started saving the money she sold in her piggy bank at home and at the end of the summer break she has saved #5,000 which is an equivalent to $11.75. She has not only learned to save her money but she will also learn to be thrifty and to make choices correctly.
Teaching or kids a skills help boost their thinking ability, they’ll begin to think critically and get more creative. Most importantly, they will grow to be more useful to themselves and will not be found wanting wherever they find themselves. As they grow, whether their parents are alive or not, they won’t be found wanting at all.
When you teach a child a skill, he/she will appreciate your effort as a guardian and not despise whatever life places before them, the kids will understand the language of economy better, they’ll know better than to spend money unnecessarily when they grow up.
