We would like to teach our children to...

Mr. Frugalitalianfamily and Baby Frugalitalianfamily
As parents we often think about the future of our children and we wonder how their life will be in twenty, thirty or more years. Will they achieve their dreams? Will they be happy? Will they be prepared for life? Of course we cannot predict now how their lives will be in the future, but for sure we can teach them some important values:

Believe in yourself
We would like to teach you to believe in yourself. You know who you are, what are your abilities and your limits and who you want to be. You are special because you are you. Do not let difficulties discourage you, you have complete capability to get over them. Learn from your mistakes and  try to focus on the bright side of each day and be thankful for that.  We love you so much.

Believe in your dreams
Work hard to achieve your dreams and never forget about them. They can motivate you to obtain the best from yourself. Remember that, at a later time, dreams could change: intelligent people accept changes.

Believe in learning 
Study, read, pay attention to everything  and learn as much as possible, this will help you to find a solution to all your problems.

Believe in the power of financial peace
Learn to save a part of your income. It will be helpful in case of  rainy days and if you will not have to face rainy days ( we hope so ), you will have a disposable amount of money to invest in your dreams.

Believe in the power of kindness
Remember to be a polite and kind person. You will obtain much more than expected and people will be pleased to deal with you.

Believe in helping people
Take care of people who need your help. Use your knowledge to help them find a solution to their problems.

Believe in the power of love
Do not be afraid to talk about your emotions. People you love need to know that.

Believe in your family
Whatever happens we will be by your side, forever.

This is the first part of the We would like to teach our children ...series as there are so many other values and advice we would like to share with our children and with you.

What advice would you give to your children? What values has helped you in your life?


  1. I wish I knew the importance of saving money earlier!

  2. my advice to our kids was always do the best you can, that's all you can do.....and they do pretty well!! We're so proud of them.
