How to shape your kids to become responsible and wise spenders

As  parents, we always want our kids to have a better future . We try to give them the best of everything in every way that we can. But as the saying goes, we should not always give them fish, we should teach them how to fish  and help them grow.

In this generation, kids are way more independent, curious, and witty. At their young age they already have their own goals in life and dreams that they wanted to achieve.

What can we do as parents to help and  make sure that our kids will become responsible and wise spenders as they get older?

Isn't it amazing if we can teach our kids on how to manage their finances at an early age?  This will allow them to have knowledge on how to unlock financial stability and value the money that they earn or save.

Healthy Meal: Pan-fried Tofu with Mixed Ground Beef and Veggies

Being a mom, we are used to waking up early and sleep late. Making sure that everything is in place and ready for the next day. It is the same with the meal that I prepare for my family.

A one-dish meal that we can share during lunch or dinner time. When I say one dish meal, it means it's already packed with all the nutrients and vitamins that our body needs, especially for growing up kids.

What's good about the one dish meals aside from it having a full meal in one, it is also not time-consuming. You can finish a simple dish in 15-30 minutes.


As long as you have the right ingredients and seasoning in your kitchen, preparing a yummy and healthy dish will be easy.

If I don't have much time to do grocery shopping, I usually check what's available in the fridge or in our food stock.

Here is one of the recipes that I can share with you that you can also prepare for your family
