Money Matters:Help children cope with financial difficulties
2009-04-02
Name: Editor Do you think children should be told about financial problems in the house? Is it right to ask a child to sacrifice his toys and sweets to help out during a financial shortage? Are there any ways in which children can help you to save money during a crisis?

I don' t think you should ask your child to give up toys just because there is no money. A child is small and cannot live without his toys. Its not the right thing to do. Please find some other way of getting money and leave the children alone. Why should we spoil the happiness of children? Children have right to receive all the happiness. They also have right to enjoy their childhood and build the memories for their future. Their future will be bright if their present is filled with lot of happiness.

Hi, I think you are misunderstanding something. The article does not ask children to give up their toys. It merely places a few limits on them. Also, what do you mean by not the right thing to do? If your child asks for something that you cannot afford, are you still going to give it to him? It will not only result in spoilage of money but also spoil your child by fulfilling his irrelevant demand. We should only give them what they need and reward them with good toys if they do well in the exams or other activities like sports, music, art etc.

This article is very nice. I think the reason parents hesitate to tell their children about problems is because they are trying to protect them from the harsh reality of life. We want our children' s life to be perfect and are willing to do what it takes to keep it that way, including lying to them. It is necessary to do small adjustment as we have to live life happily. It is very important that children are aware about such situations in life so that they can face them in their future life effectively. Facing such ups and downs in life will make them more strong and brave and make them ready to face harsh realities of life.

RE:Miserly In laws & Hubby
Hello dear this is really weird behave of your husband towards you, please do one thing just speak to your husband directly and ask him whether he really loves and want to spend the rest of his life with you or not. Just go and ask him upfront and see the reaction on it.... - Anaida [View Message]
RE:Miserly In laws & Hubby
According to me you should not act like this as this is really sad to see that your husband is treating you so badly infact you should make him understand that this is not the way you are asked to be treated and the same will continue then it will be bad for him.... - Anita [View Message]

Hi dear if you want you can speak to some women empowerment organization as this is not done and you should not allow such things to affect your life at all, please maintain your dignity as you are self made women and not dependent on your husband for everything.... - Aditi [View Message]
RE:Miserly In laws & Hubby
Hello friend this is not acceptable and why are you not raising your voice against injustice on you. Please speak to your husband on this and make him feel that what he is doing is completely wrong with you and ask him directly what is the reason behind it.... - Aditi [View Message]
RE:Miserly In laws & Hubby
If the husband follows the inlawas means its very clear that he will always listen to them instead to you, in this matter i can clearly say that you are not living the life you deserve and just helping your husband in his living and earning for him.... - Sujata [View Message]
RE:Miserly In laws & Hubby
You are earning a good amount of money monthly and as you have said that your husband is also earning very well then why are you giving your money to him and why are you not questing him about his earnings as its your rights on it, please speak up on this.... - Suman [View Message]
