Did you know today is National ‘Teach Your Child to Save’ Day?
Forbes.com recommend the following to help your child become a savvy saver.
1. Include your child in some financial decisions. For instance, explain, “The reason I chose the ‘own brand’ juice rather than the brand name is because it costs £1.00 less and tastes the same to me,” .
2. Set up a saving and a spending piggy bank with your child- who can fill their saver first and leave it for longest?
3. Plan to save. Got a holiday coming up or a weekend cinema trip? Plan what you would like to eat/ buy before and save for it.
4. When you’re shopping, talk aloud about how you’re making your financial decisions as a grown-up, asking questions like, “Is this something we really, really need? Or can we skip it this week since we’re going out to dinner?”
The Legend of St George & The Dragon
The medieval legend of St George and the dragon is over a thousand years old. The tale goes that the dragon made it’s nest by the fresh water spring near the town of Silene in Libya. When people came to collect water, they inadvertently disturbed the dragon and so offered sheep as a distraction.
After time, there were simply no sheep left to offer the dragon and so the people of Silene decided to chose a maiden from the town. When the results were read, it was revealed that the princess was to be the dragon’s next victim.
However, a knight came riding by on his white stallion. St George dismounted and drew his sword, protecting himself with the sign of the cross. He fought the dragon on foot and managed to slay the beast and save the princess.
