For the Love of Drawing

Nowadays, children are more into video games and playing with other gizmo instead of getting creative and play outdoors games. My husband and I always encourage our daughter to be creative. Her favorite past time now is drawing. We also let her play outside too. And yes, she's a techie and loves to play on my iPad.
There are some appropriate and educational apps out there for our kids. But as parents, we should remember that our children’s skills and abilities will be their most valuable asset throughout their lives. Everything is not about video games.

Daughter's First Bank Account

 Our 8-year old got her first bank account! Hubby and I opened a savings account for her at USAA right after we came home from our trip to the Philippines. Thanks to my family in the Philippines for giving her some money. She received over P5,000.
As a parent, it is important for our child to learn the value of a dollar, their first bank account is a good place to start. Teaching them financial responsibility is one of the greatest gifts we can give to them.
