One of the most important things you have to remember when trying to instill something important in your kids is this: show, don’t preach. Don’t preach to them about the value of saving; show that you know how to save. Don’t tell them that they should do this and that without showing that you can, too.
One of the biggest problems in the United States is that parents often spoil their families without realizing the consequences of the overspending. While it’s fine to show just how much you’re willing to spend on your loved ones, you can show more love by showing that they’re financially stable even a decade from today.
