2) Share with your kids the way you earn money in this tough world
You work so hard on all the weekdays to give your family a good happy life, so it is necessary for your kids to know about how much effort you take from Monday to Friday by working so hard to get the paycheck at the end of the month.
If you are a business owner then share with them your routine of the day, so that they understand how much efforts you take for making sure your family stays happy always.

3) Make your kids sharper – Share with them the Tax System of your country
Hardly we take out the topic of tax in front of our children as we think that they will not understand the tax system or we think that they are too small for now to know about the tax system.
We suggest that you should not bother about the age and take out the tax topics in front of your kids to let them know about the taxes you pay to the government. Also you need to tell them how different beneficiary schemes by govt for saving money can help you reimburse your hard earned money, so by seeing this they will slowly get the habit of saving more and more.
Moreover kids will realize how the flow is money takes place from people to government and how the government utilizes that money for the growth of the country.
4) Make Your Kids Intellectual- Teach them to think about what they wanna become in life.
Its never too early to think about what you wanna become in life. There are many entrepreneurs who have started their own business being as young as 16.
This is not a single day process that you will tell your kids to think about what they wanna become in their life. This is a continuous process where you would also have to be a guide and mentor for your child to give them understanding and to make them know about the real world, so that they can start the process from early age to become a big successful personality of tomorrow.
5) Its time to care about our ‘Mother Earth’
The pollution levels are increasing, the amount of the carbon-dioxide is more than it ever was on our planet before.
The carbon-dioxide and the other green house gases are responsible for global warming. So in future times the younger generation needs to take care and protect our environment with planting more trees and taking care of our planet by pollution less.
You need to explain them how much our mother earth gives and and in return its our responsibility to give the care and protection it deserves.
6) Tell them the harsh reality of Addictive Drugs
Children often try new alcohol drinks, try their hand at smoking and the worst of all try drugs at a very young age in some scenarios to appear cooler in their friend circle, but before they take such steps you need to educate your kids about the good and the bad.
You need to educate them that there are many drugs in market which are addictive and the consequences of those drugs is worse than we can even imagine.
According to many research’s, the children now a day’s try lots of new stuff to appear cooler, so it’s only your teaching that can stop them from taking any drastic steps ahead in their future.
7) How can they handle all situations with positive attitude
In certain aspects, Parents need to act like friends to their kids, so that their kids can easily talk about their problems.
If you will be a tough parent in all situations, chances are your kid will always try to manage everything on his/her own.
Life is big and problems would be many as life goes ahead, so you need to make your kid ready for the toughest times and that only can happen when you implant a positive attitude in them to lead a good humble life.
A parent needs to explain kids that no matter what is the problem, there is always a solution. With positive attitude you ‘Always Can Do It’.

We would suggest one simple friendly way to teach your kids about ‘Saving Money’: Consider that your kid wants you to buy him/her a new bicycle or some game or doll or some other thing. So as a parent you can tell them that he gets some pocket money daily, so if he saves everyday from his pocket money he can buy that thing that he/she wants in next 5-6 months from his own saving.
Moreover you can tell them that if their savings are not enough to buy any particular thing they want to have, then you will also pitch in some money.
