How do you prepare your child for kindergarten?

Christine from MommyMatter

We taught the kids the basics. Kindergarten it isn't mandatory to come in knowing anything and the teachers do not expect it. All they ask is that your children know how to dress themselves and use the bathroom with zero assistance!

At what age did you (or would you) give your child a cell phone? (Please include any contracts or conditions you gave your child with this use)

Christine from MommyMatter

My children will not be allowed a cell phone until they are of age to have a job and pay for the device themselves. It is a big responsibility for a teen to have and they should also understand the financial side of them if they have one.

What's your best tip for teaching a gradeschooler about money?

Christine from MommyMatter

Our children are provided with money for completing tasks around the house. We have an app on our iPad that we use also to help the kids learn about money. They love it and gets them thinking about the importance of money.

Do you try to give back when you declutter? Please share your family traditions for benefitting others.

Christine from MommyMatter

One of my favourite things to do is give away the things I no longer need. I don't care how much I spent on the item, if I don't need it anymore there is someone in this world who does. We constantly clean out the closets and the cupboards and donate things we no longer need. A good deed a day, goes a long way.
