Teach Them How To Save

I am so glad that my youngest daughter has the initiative to save.

I gave her P 20.00 everyday as her extra allowance aside from the cracker and Yakult she brought to school for snacks. I gave her P 20.00 so if she have something she would like to buy, she have money to pay for it. However, later on I found out she is not spending it instead she save it. I encouraged her to save more so she can get the books she would like to buy. But it was last month that someone stole her money inside her wallet. She cried so hard because she saved that for my birthday. The guidance counselor talked to her about it. She was relieved somehow, she told me about it, scared that I will be mad. She was surprised because I did not, I mean she already had a terrible day at school and I do not want to add anything on her shoulder. I let it pass but I advised her to leave the money at home she saved at home, in that way it will be secure, she hesitated at first but she was convinced at the later time.

To inspire her, I always show how much money she already saved. She was happy to find out is getting bigger.

We joined the Binge Book Sale and she was able to buy Myths Busted 2 and The Warrior Cats. We paid for it out from her savings and yesterday after we claimed her report card, we went to Big Bad Wolf Book Sale and she bought Miss Peregrine Book and 2 Land of Stories.

Her books are a bit expensive, good thing we were able to join the two events that give us discounts and that she was able to afford it since she saved. So if you have kids her age, it is better to teach them how to save so they would know how hard it is to earn money.

If you want to get something, you must do some savings.

Her Dearest Bookworm Friend

Faith’s love books a lot, there are times that she would show it to her teachers at school. She just loves to read. She even completed the “The Land of Stories” series and even she already finished reading it. She would always go back and read it again that I think she already memorize all of the lines in the book.

One day she brought this book at school and she showed it to her teacher. Her teacher was amazed of how thick it is, this teacher also loves to read books. I was surprised because she posted pictures in FB and she tags me to it.

Land Of Stories Series Missing Book 1 and 4

The Land of Stories series is recommended by Faith’s Dad on her birthday. I search for it in National Bookstore right away; we wrapped it and handed it to her at school. Since there was no Book 1, I skipped to Book 2, I thought she won’t like it or never would asked the rest of the series I was wrong because the moment she read the Book 2, she can’t help but looking for the rest of the series. So when I checked that the Book 3 was on sale, I bought it for her after few months, she even told me she keeps on skipping but she said its okay she had a good time reading it and then just recently, it was last Summer she saw the latest series of the Land of Stories. She begged me to buy, it was not on sale so it is obviously so pricey. But anyway, I told myself, she’s not using gadgets for these past weeks and only watching TV for one hour in a day so why not gave her a rewarded. Furthermore, it is better to get addicted with book than getting herself busy on gadgets. She skipped again the reason why we are looking for the missing series. Anyone?

Never Heard A Complain At All

These past few days, I’d been so busy doing some school stuffs merely covering my kids books especially with Faith so that her stuffs won’t easily get torn up. After I covered her school books, she begged me to cover also her newly purchased books. She got 3 books for the land of stories. She had Book 2, Book 3 and Book 5 and all of it was not covered, she noticed that it was easily damaged so she asked me to cover the new one. I told her I would only cover her books if she would help and she was willingly lent me a hand. I guessed she was enjoying it because I didn’t hear any complain at all.
