Beany and the Grocery List – The easy way to teach your toddler about money

His mom helps him simply understand what’s the difference between needs and wants.

He teaches him to make a plan and to allocate his scarce resources efficiently.

It is important from early on, to help your child realize, that we live in a world with limited resources. Whether it’s time, or money, or health, or energy, or food, or environment or anything else. Helping them learn how to manage resources wisely, will help them be efficient and planing long-term.

One of the most important lessons to teach them is that when we invest our time in anything, it’s lost forever. So, we need to be aware of the choices we make.
