There's no doubt that teaching your child smart money management habits is vital to their long-term success. But amid all the soccer games, PTA meetings and lunch-packing, the school year can get busy -- making summer the perfect time to start teaching them about money. Here are some great ways to help your child understand finances:
Empower them to earn.Start chores young, giving your child small, incremental responsibilities around the house in exchange for money, play time or another reward. Show them that hard work pays off.
Encourage them to get a job.When old enough, encourage your kids to get a job. Maybe it's babysitting for a next-door neighbor or clearing tables at the pizzeria down the street. Whatever it is, working outside the home helps teach financial responsibility, social skills and time management all in one fell swoop.
Try a prepaid debit card.Prepaid debit cards are a great way to teach your kids responsible spending habits without too much financial risk. Consider depositing a small amount onto the card each month and letting them figure out how to budget it week over week. After a few overly indulgent purchases (and a zero balance until the next month rolls around), you can bet they'll start learning how to manage their funds more wisely.
Use tech to your advantage.It's no secret that today's kids are tech-savvy, so why not leverage that? You can findapps to help themmanage their allowance, learn to invest and save, and establish smart spending habits.
Encouraging your kids to develop smart money management habits can set them up for a lifetime of success -- and maybe even help them

Your Stress-Free Guide to Shopping for Home LoansBy: HouseLogicWi
""Jemila guided us through the entire process. She took great care of us and goes beyond the duties of a realtor. She not only did an amazing job selling our home, she is vital in the process of getting us into a new one. She and her team (Patrick) went out of their way to accommodate us and our hectic schedule and it is greatly appreciated. As I said before, she did a great job as a realtor, as we sold the house for more than I was initially expecting but she was a better advisor. At one point, we were questioning if we should sell the home and she provided great advice that allowed us to weigh the options ourselves and tell her what was in my family's best interest for the long-term. I would refer her in a heartbeat! She really understands that selling your home is a huge decision and can be a daunting process. Every step of the way, we felt she was right there supporting and protecting us throughout the entire process. We are currently working with her on building our dream home.""
