8 Benefits of Pets On Kids’ Overall Health

I grew up with lots of dogs in different stages of my childhood, well into my 20's. I love having dogs around but when I became a mother, pets were fish, a turtle, and more fish (which we really don't classify as pets as they can't be touched anyway).

4 Best Ways to Teach Your Kids the Value of Real Estate and Investing

Money and the value of real estate may be a very adult topic for kids to learn early on in life. However, the famous line "all we really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be we learned in kindergarten" is true in many aspects. Aside from the basics of sharing, being kind to one another, cleaning up after ourselves, and living "a balanced life" of work, play, and learning, we can also teach kids a lot of other things from an early age. One of those is how to view money properly. It's not to make them look at money as more important than virtues, but that having and spending money should be viewed with a balanced outlook. We should teach kids about God and having good ...

Kids Having Their Own ATM Card? When Is the Right Time?

This is a question most parents have. Technically, you can open a bank account in your child’s name when he reaches the minimum age required by the bank of your choice. So, it’s best to check with your local banks to find out what this age is. (Where we are, that's 14 and free of charges.) It’s never too early to set up a bank account for your child. In fact, a lot of parents open a separate account where they deposit the money their child receives, earns.
