Value of money

Kids Spend Pocket Money Lavishly

Today’s kids grow in an environment of liberal atmosphere. They are pampered at home and doled out lavish pocket money regularly by not only the parents but other relatives also. In addition to money, the kids demand whatever they want and get it! Once the kids grow to become boys, they start spending the pocket money lavishly with their friends and demand even more money. Parents concede their request. Once they become college students, vices automatically develop. They become alcoholics, heavy smokers, drug addicts and womanisers even before they come out of their colleges.

Pampering By Parents

Today many chain snatchers from women in Chennai city are college students and even some school students.

Parents Are Ignorant Of Their Children

Today parents are interested in only multiplying their earnings and spending whatever earned lavishly. Many parents borrow heavily by using credit cards and pay through their noses. They neglect their children and do not even know what is happening at home. Thus the kids go unmonitored. Lack of realization of value of money leads to bigger troubles later in their lives. They thus become unfit for social life.

This will cultivate savings habit and make them to realise the importance of proper financial planning.
