I learned about how to handle money mostly from my parents. There was no crash course in school on how to be financially responsible. I picked up on how to live week to week, bounce checks once in awhile, and not make the best fiscal choices simply by watching how my parents did it. The idea of a savings account with something actually in it was foreign to me. And, although I always wanted to contribute to some charitable cause, I was never in a position to do so. Overloaded credit cards, bad loans, and a poor credit score soon became my reality. It’s not easy to climb out of that hole once you’re in it.

Now that I’m almost 40, I have a better handle on money. How to spend, save, and invest wisely. I stick to a budget (for the most part) and divide up our income accordingly. My hope is that my kids will be watching me now. While I’m far from perfect when it comes to money, I hope my kids will be learn the basics of good money management way sooner than I did.

A great way to introduce kids to managing their money is by using the Money Savvy Soccer Ball bank! With four separate see-through chambers clearly marked for saving, spending, investing, and donating, kids can see their goals being met. Designed to show kids how to manage money, this fun and interactive resource comes with a set of glittery goal setting stickers to help kids track their goals for each of their money choices and a guide on how to get started!

This money managment tool has been the perfect way to get my girls really excited about being in control of what’s in their piggy bank! They decided to set some great goals including saving up for a family trip to the movies and piling up some dough for a generous donation to our local animal shelter. I love that this is a fun hands-on way that will help prepare my girls to get started at a young age for financial success.

You can get your kids excited about being smart with their money too! Reasonably priced at just $19.99, this Parent’s Choice Gold Award winning tool will pay for itself quickly with the savvy budgeting skills it teaches.
