“Memorial Day” means “Fun Three-Day Weekend.” It comes in late May, after all, when days are long and green, a preview of summer vacation to come. Indeed, for lots of families, the holiday kicks off a glorious season of barbecues, swimming, and other outdoor fun. We march in the parade with our dog, we even taught our dog to paw salute, when we pass a Veteran.
But the true meaning of Memorial Day goes much deeper than this. It is a somber day of remembrance for the men and women who have died for our country, and now’s a great time to start talking about it with your kids. The respect for our Military forces should be all year long, BUT this weekend is a perfect time to talk to your children about sacrifice and what it means to be a American. So when you are marching in parade or relaxing watching TV, take a few minutes and explain to your children what it means to be a American and respect for our armed forces. God Bless America!
Mom's, listen up, the best thing I ever did was give my kid a debit card! Your child will learn more from this then you can even imagine. Some kids just see us pull out our credit cards and wala instant merchandise. I wanted to show the process, as a entrepreneur I encouraged my daughter to "take the challenge" and start a "FUN" business over the summer. I took it a step further and gave her a debit card to buy whatever she wanted as long as she was accountable for the money in the account. The debit card was in my name, her possession, kept tight in in her little cupcake wallet in her bag.
