ACTIVITIACTIVITIES FOR KIDS
Choose just one or two activities and excel in t them. Andrea says that while you should sho allow your kids to explore their i interests, talk to them about commit committing to just one or two activities, when whe they’re older.
(based on cutting down one activity in each three-month term) t Determine if your kids really need tuition. T Turn to tuition ($20-$30 an hour) only if they’re failing a subject, rather than if they’re just weak in it. Andrea adds

that sometimes, kids don’t do well in school because they’re not interested in a subject – not because they can’t do it.

(based on stopping tuition for one subject)
Limit spending on toys, clothes and treats. Admit it: it’s the mummyguilt talking. If you have two kids, that could work out to least $300 a month. Treat your kids every other month instead.
