Teach good shopping habits
When shopping, you can teach your children to be selective consumers while helping them improve their math skills. For example, when you’re at the supermarket, pick up two boxes of cereal and say, “This one costs $2.50, this one’s $4.50. Which should I buy?” Then discuss why you would or wouldn’t choose the less expensive box. Sometimes price per ounce is the determining factor. Other times, you might be willing to pay more for a product you believe is better. In either case, having these sorts of discussions helps your kids become more thoughtful consumers.
