Money Values Should Be Thought in Children.As this the TOW topic in ISC, I wish to express the thought of money in the young minds. The present generation children don't have value for money. In this context I don't blame the children, but it's the mistake of the parents. In the past days when a pen/pencil was given to us by our parents, with an instruction that we have to preserve it and not lose it. Similarly we also use to follow those instructions, which was given by elders. Suppose if we lose also we would search for it and also get scared to ask our parents for a new one.
But now the children are not bothered if they lose a pencil, pen, rubber, and other stationery items, which they take to school or college daily. If they lose they say to the parents "We want one pencil I lost it" without any fear. Even parents without asking the child any thing they buy two and give them. Even when they visit any mall they buy N number of toys to the child without thinking its price. By all this the child has lost the value of money. They don't no what's the value of earning one rupee. They think that by swiping a card in mall can buy any thing or withdrawing money in ATM gives them lot of money. They don't know to swipe a card or withdraw money in ATM can't be done if there is no cash in our account. So please teach your child the value of money and it should not be spent unnecessarily without our needs.
Why I took this topic is, few days' back my son lost his pencil in school and asked to buy a new one. When I told him 'simply' "I don't have money". He said "go to ATM and put the card you will get lots of money and then buy a pencil for me". By his words I learn't a lesson that what a value we are giving and teaching about money to our children. I think, that we should first teach them how difficult it is to earn even one rupee per day.
This is my entry regarding Money and its value.
