I have this memory of me as a kid every Christmas, opening up my alkansya or piggy bank with a big grin on my face.
"Oh, the joy that I'll finally get to buy what I was saving for, that whole year!"
I don't remember how young I was back then, but I know that my parents taught me about saving money at an early age. And that is something Jaear and I are working on with our kids- Tristan, Athena, and Brianna.
It may sound cliche, but as parents, we only want what's best for our children. So aside from providing for their needs, we also equip them with lessons that are not just school taught. And that includes teaching them to have a healthy perspective and attitude towards money and saving, this way we give them a headstart in life.
