They say that if you want to teach your children values, introduce it to them at a very early age. One of the values that I want the Little Jedi to learn is frugality and value for money. When he got Lucasaurus, I got excited because I can start teaching him how to save money.
I started by teaching him how to shoot the coins in the bank. It was a game we played. Eventually, I would leave a coin on places where he could reach them. Then he would get Lucasaurus and put the coins in it.
I realized that more than just teaching him the value of saving, it is also an association, problem-solving, and psychomotor activity for him. Well, that’s how I see it. For him, I bet he sees it as a game. 🙂
