How we’ve been using Ketshop in our family
A few days ago, we were at a grocery store with the children. Of course they wanted all the snacks and toys. So we opened up Ketshop and showed them their balance and progress towards their goals.
“I’ll buy this toy for you, but it will come out of your Ketshop savings. What do you want to do?” After much consideration, they chose to buy slime (about $1.00 each) instead of the $24.99 stuffed animals they were originally begging for.
We still pay our children for above-and-beyond tasks, such as vacuuming or shoveling the driveway. The allowance is intended to give our kids more financial empowerment, one set of sticky hands at a time.
Parenting podcast recommendations
Recently, I’ve been listening to a lot of parenting podcasts. Sometimes I’m trying to get new perspectives for Ketshop, but often I’m just trying to be the best parent I can. There are literally thousands of podcasts out there, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorites. Click the link below to read on the blog!
