Edi­tor’s note

Parenting - - Contents -

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!
