10 Ways for Kids to Earn Money
It is a very valuable lesson for kids to work for what they want. Here are 10 great ways for kids to earn money.
Now that my children are at the stage where they were moving away to pursue their own adult lives, I find myself having moments where I am absolutely consumed with regret. We never went to Disney World.
Being Organized for School Mornings
The first thing you need to do is eliminate the mad scramble of the morning rush. You need to be organized and be prepared ahead of time. I will give you some great tips to avoid the morning chaos.
Set Household Routines for School Success
Over the years, I have learned a couple of tricks to keep my kids healthy, well-fed and rested so they can put their full attention toward learning. My boys are teenagers now but need structure more than ever. Here is what I do.
Bake Bread With Your Grandchildren
As a grandparent, I want to teach my grandchildren the simple techniques of cooking. My husband has been on 2 mission trips with our church to Iceland. I have baked sour dough bread and sold it to defray the costs of the trip each year.
Learning At Home
I work for an elementary school. I assist with second and third grade students. On Saturdays, before my grandchildren moved, I set up a mini classroom. I taught math, spelling, crafts and we also baked and assisted with life skills.
Teaching Kids to Save
I have this coconut bear coinbank which I got four years ago. This was a freebie from opening a kiddie bank account for my child. The bank gave this to encourage parents to teach children to keep at least a single penny a day.
Dentists Buy Back Candy
Do you have a lot of candy left over? Or too much candy for your kids? Many local dentists will buy back candy from the kids for $1 a pound.
Crayon as Alternative Candle
This is an emergency tip. If you are out of candles or you are in a camping trip with kids, Crayola crayons are another alternate to candles. Lighting a crayon can last for 30 minutes!
Keeping Kids' Toys to a Minimum
When your child receives something new, they should have to give one of their old toys to a thrift store, or a friend. It keeps clutter down to a minimum. It also teaches them to not overdo it as they get older.
Adult Child Distancing Himself from Mother
I have a very loving relationship with my adult son. However there are times when he distances himself from me for no apparent reason. He doesn't answer my calls or texts even after I've tried him several times. This makes my heart heavy.
Grandchild Not Grateful for Birthday Gift
I sent my new college freshman grandson $50 on his birthday for his on-campus account last week. I know he knows I did so, because my son told me he had let my grandson know I did. Knowing my grandson responds to text messages, here's the one I just composed to him:
Adult Daughter Is a Mess
My adult daughter has been going in a downhill spiral for a long time now. She has been in a loveless marriage for at least ten years. She has been in and out of alcohol treatment for at least that long. She has had several jobs and has been let go from the last three due to her alcoholism.
Older Child Afraid of the Dark
My middle child is 12 now and is still afraid of the dark because she feels unsafe and believes that if she turns the light off someone will kidnap her or kill her in a twisted way. How do I assure her that she is safe?
Middle School Melee - Getting a Boy to Read
Any additional suggestions on how to get a middle school/junior high boy to read? I am concerned about my grandson. I know my daughter would be interested in her son's academic improvement.
Job Ideas for a 12 Year Old
My daughter is 12 years old and she really wants to earn money fast. I don't know what she can do. She wants to work for money, and I don't know what.
