talking about money when your child shows an interest in buying things, candy or toys, for example. 1. The basic function of money Begin explaining the basic function of money by showing how people trade money for goods or services. It is important to show your child how money is traded for the things he wants to have. If he wants to have a toy, give him the money and let him hand the money to the cashier(收银员). 72 When your child grows a bit older
and understands the basic function of money, you can start explaining more ways of using money. 2. Money lessons Approach money lessons with openness and honesty. 73 If you must say no
to a child’s request to spend money, explain, “You have to make a choice between this and that toy.” 3. 74
Begin at the grocery store. Pick out two similar brands of a product –a name-brand butter and a generic(无商标产品), for example. You can show your child how to make choices between different brands of a product so that you can save money. 75 If
he chooses the cheaper brand, allow him to make another purchase with the money saved. Later, you may explain how more expensive choice leaves less money for other purchases. A. Wise decision B. The value of money C. Permit the child to choose between them. D. Tell your child why he can –or cannot –have certain things. E. Ask yourself what things that cost money are most important to you. F. Talk about how the money bought the thing after you leave the toy store.
