Financial Lessons 2

Age: 4 years, 9 months & 1 week & 1 day old

After knowing the origin of money, the concept of money from games and stories, the next step is to know where does money come from by:

1. Letting the children know their parents' work. This one I sure know as I go to yeh-yeh (grandpa)'s shop everyday. So I know about daddy's work. Sometimes I even "help" daddy to repair the engines/machines! =D

2. Letting the children pay. This is a good educational opportunity. This means let me pay for my own school fees. So I'd know we need to pay money one for certain things. And to value it. This also can train my responsibility. 

So mummy put this month's school fees in this envelope and wrote "Please put the receipt into this envelope. Thanks!" As this is my first time, so daddy accompanied me to the teacher and explained to her. Next time, and many months to come, I'll pay myself. Mission accomplished! =D

We heard this song on the radio last night. It's always mummy's favorite song. So mummy sang along with the song and taught me the chorus. Then we sing sing sing, and suddenly I said "Mummy, you sing better than them."

Financial Lessons 1

Age: 4 years, 8 months & 4 weeks & 2 days old

Last Sunday, daddy borrowed a book in the library called "Child's Life Financial Plan". In the book, it stated a child should learn about money concept as early as possible. Can start at age 2 or 3 or even earlier. Daddy found that it is indeed a good book. So daddy followed the plan in the book. And so, I started my financial lessons last week. 

Step 1 : Instilling the concept of money. This step is 'About the origin of money'. I got the understanding of money from stories and games.

After telling me some money stories, mommy decided to play a game. My beloved "masak-masak". But not the usual "masak-masak". This time, we involved $$$. Mummy created these money. RM10, RM5, RM1, 50 cents, 20 cents and 10 cents.
Mummy divided the money into 2 for me and herself.
I even have my own purse to put my money in. "fake" LV. =P
Mummy owned a veges and fruits stall in 'pasar' (market). I was the customer named SHARON (I requested this myself). So I went to her stall to buy fresh veges and fruits. I buy and buy and buy until my money getting less.

Yin Yue : "Wah, why my money getting less and less?"
Mummy : "Because you used your money to buy veges and fruits. If you want to have more money, you gotta work or better - do business."

After hearing what mummy said, I quickly suggested we switch roles. I became the owner of the stall so I can earn more money. LOL!
Roles switched. Mummy came and bought many veges and fruits as she has a party at night. Since she bought so many, so the total was RM40.

Mummy : "Wah, so expensive ah Sharon. Can give discount a bit?"
"Sharon" : "hmmmmmmm.... RM1."
Mummy : "AH!!!!! So cheap? You will be out of business very soon then."
"Sharon" : "Never mind la!" 

Of cause never mind, because I wanted to switch role again as I want to throw a party myself too. =P

P/S: Mummy's purse was made of paper. =D
Daddy joined in the fun later. I bought all of the  veges and fruits because I have a party at night.
So it cost me quite a lot until I didn't know how to count. Daddy helped me with the money.
While daddy and I were playing, mummy took care of di-di (brother).

I Want to Marry You

I got mild flu on Wednesday. During our little chat time on the bed before we sleep, I told daddy I was very sad due to the flu. So daddy asked me to think of happy things, don't be sad. Suddenly in the midnight:

Yin Yue : "Daddy, I want to marry u."
Daddy : "Oh y?"
Yin Yue : "Because marriage is very happy, u told me to think happy things." 

Because it was midnight, so daddy didn't bother much and slept. Then on Thursday nite, when daddy was shaving his beard:

Yin Yue : "Daddy, y do u have so many beards?"
Daddy : "Man is like that."
Yin Yue : "eeeeee.... I don't want to marry u now. I want to marry Dun Hong. Dun Hong has no beards. I like him VERY much."

* Dun Hong is my classmate.

* Mummy laughed and realized that this has come --> "I like xxx, I want to marry xxx." And adults will always go "is he your boyfriend?" "who is your boyfriend?" kinda stuff. :|
