If you notice a certain situation that may be going out of their hands, teach them how best to handle it so that they remember the lesson and learn from it.
  • Law and Rules: Talk to your children about rules and the law. Tell them how important it is to follow the law. This will teach them to be legal in whatever they do. When you abide by the law, you are within certain limits and when you have limits you also need a budget to help you stay within the limit. Let them know about taxes and how it is very important to pay them. Also tell them that sometimes you may not agree with the law but since they are laws you have to abide by them.

Finances: When you talk to your children about budgeting and money and finances, tell them the importance of all of these. Tell them where the money from the tax is being used and how that will be beneficial for them.
