  • In your next grocery run, before putting an item into the shopping cart, talk about whether it is a need or want.

  • Encourage your child to think how s/he can earn money this summer.

  • Talk to your child about how the family decides what is important (i.e, needs vs wants).

  • How do you decide how much of your money goes into the spend, save, share jars?​

  • How can you earn to grow the money in your jars?

  • Talk to your children about what you do, how you got into your career, etc. Help them figure out what they would want to do when they grow up.

  • Help your child find opportunities to explore a career they're interested in. Think internships, volunteer opportunities, clubs, etc.

  • Start a family goal setting session. Talk about how the goals connect to your values. Include the collective needs and wants of the family unit. Plan when you will review the plan.
