Raising financially-savvy kids who are incredibly wealthy in love and character is what this issue of Parenting is all about.
We had fun tackling the topic of family budgeting literally and not-so-literally – bringing you practical ideas from financial advisors and experts, alongside thoughts about the importance of budgeting a day's rest every now and then – thanks for the reminder, Petra! We also take a look at why self-control is such a vital ingredient in the shaping of kids’ characters, and how we can help them develop this key life skill.
Each issue, we try and gather as much inspiring information as we can, and yet there is nothing quite like a real-life story to communicate the beauty and wealth of family life. A big thank you to Hannah Haiu and Dee Rolston for sharing your stories and why you've chosen to 'do family' a little differently.
We hope you enjoy this issue as much we have!
