Learning about money

Lennon received a special gift from Grandpa in the mail today, his very first piggy bank! Not actually a piggy, but a tree frog to go with his room. By the time I got home from work daddy and Lennon had already loaded it up with some coin.

I’m actually really excited for Lennon to learn about the concept of saving and budgeting. These were two things I wad never taught in life (thus my financial turmoil aftermath) and it is definitely high on my list of things for him to understand.

I wonder what he’ll “save” for first! A new bike? A video game?

On a similar note, does your little get an allowance? Or maybe chore money? At What age did you start and how much do they earn or do you give?
