Children and money, preschoolers

My neighbor had a tragedy the other day. While she was spinning in the kitchen, the three-year-old daughter pulled a purse out of her purse and tore all the money into small candy wrappers. And then she ran to her mother and shouted happily: Mom, I have a blue dozdik on the floor. (Who did not understand, colorful rain!)

For kids, money is just another toy!

I sincerely sympathize with the neighbor! I, as long as I live, have never faced such a situation. So, apart from the words of participation and condolences, more and did not find what to say to her. It is good that in her purse there was not a large amount. But even a small amount of finance that has flown away to the wind is still pitiful.

In our home, money always hid from us, three small children. My mother was a very practical woman and with a healthy realism looked at life. She managed to foresee all sorts of situations, so at home emergency emergency almost never happened.

Mom, although she was not a psychologist by profession, understood very well that it was the same thing to demand that the children eat with a knife and a fork to demand awareness and seriousness about money from children.

Therefore, young mothers just need to remember once and for all that until the children grow up, the money should be kept in a place inaccessible to them. Otherwise, one day they too will be in for a multicolored surprise in the form of bills torn into pieces, or, as happened in another family, a charitable distribution of money to all passersby.

Yes, yes, this story told me one of the employees! It was on the playground, where, as you know, sometimes such situations happen that it’s good to make films. While one mother turned away to chat with a friend who was passing by, the innocent child took out money from her bag pocket and let them distribute to the right and left.

When mother remembered, some of the happy owners of bills – and there were these children a little older – had already sankanuli in the bushes and were like that. A little later, they were seen by other neighbors with ice cream in their hands. It also happens!

First skill, then understanding

In general, in dealing with such abstract things as electricity, for example, well, and money, of course, parents should not be too sophisticated. Here the main thing to develop a habit.

Do not go into the outlet – DO NOT. Do not touch the money – DO NOT.


Of course, at preschool age there is not a lot of pocket money yet and there is no talk. The children will have the right to dispose of their own money a little later – at least, when they are already able to realize the causal link: if you give money to the cashier, you get the goods in your hands.

But! Elementary skills in handling money can be tried to inculcate in children from the age of 4 onwards. First, with the help of a home game in a store, where the equivalent of real money will be multi-colored pieces of paper. On them it is possible and tsiferki draw – at the same time the child will learn to count and fold.

A little later, a preschooler can be given real money (although I don’t really like this idea for hygienic reasons) – for example, in a store where you have to pay. You will prepare the money, the child will pass into the hands of the aunt-seller.

It would be interesting to know what stories you have about money and small children. Or maybe you will share your experience of how you introduced your children to the world of commodity-money relations.
