    in life than possessions and that contrary to the pop culture saying he who dies with the most toys doesn t win he s just as dead as the next dead person with fewer toys Ever since the turn of the 21st century our kids have been exposed to the spectacle of corporate executives sports figures and entertainment stars being led off in handcuffs Usually their crimes involved money and most of the time they already had more money than most of us But they were willing to take the chance of having their reputations destroyed and going to jail in order to get more money Teaching money values and controlling the importance of money in our lives isn t easy Sometimes we don t even realize the messages we are sending our kids about money and values A great example is the experience of the 11 year old who went on two shopping trips the same day Maureen and Barry have three kids The oldest Haley is 11 One Saturday morning Maureen took Haley to the local mall to by a new dress shoes and a purse for a special family wedding That afternoon Barry went to the local hardware store for batteries and few other equally exciting items for the house and Haley came along We like to think of Maureen Barry and their kids as enlightened because they had read our book Silver Spoon Kids and had started having family meetings weekly to discuss issues that were important to anyone in the family The kids valued the meetings because it gave them a forum where they really felt heard by their parents If work or travel made it necessary for Maureen or Barry to cancel a meeting the kids made sure it was rescheduled One week they actually had the meeting in the pool At the next family meeting Haley commented that she had a better time with her father looking for batteries than with her mother buying a new dress Maureen couldn t believe that an 11 year old girl would rather look for batteries than shop for new clothes She automatically assumed that spending money on oneself ranks higher than going to a hardware store Haley explained that what was important to her wasn t what they were buying It was that Maureen was rushing to get through even though she was spending money on Haley while Barry wasn t in a hurry and she had more connecting time with her father Maureen realized that there had been too much urgency in their shopping experience She had rushed through the morning in order to get home in time to take the other two kids to their activities Maureen got an important lesson out of the shopping experience In the future she would make certain to adjust her schedule to allow for unhurried time together with Haley and that time with her daughter was much more important than what she spent on her As role models

    that it s the parents job to provide them with the right values But even marketing professionals are starting to get concerned In a Harris Interactive poll of youth marketers conducted in 2004 61 felt that advertising to children starts too early Though we believe marketers should be more responsible for the messages they send we too believe that parents are responsible for monitoring and counteracting the impact of these messages and helping their kids learn to regulate their money behavior This is a much greater responsibility than it was years ago but it is one that any parent is perfectly capable of handling with the right knowledge and effort In The Shelter of Each Other Mary Pipher makes the point that survival in the modern world requires families to be intentional in their choices Parents need to protect their children from what is harmful and connect them to what is good and beautiful In other words we need to protect our kids by instilling positive values and critical thinking especially when it comes to commercials This can be done in a number of ways but here are some simple suggestions every financially intelligent parent should adopt Limit your child s exposure to commercials If you re watching with your child turn off the television or at least the sound when commercials are on A recent study by the American Psychological Association found that kids under 8 have a tough time distinguishing commercials from entertainment Encourage your child to spend at least some of his time in front of the television watching rented movies or stations without commercials Even better buy a PVR personal video recorder or DVR digital video recorder prerecord the programs and filter out the commercials You should also limit the time he spends watching television It is the accumulated and repeated messages of advertising that does damage Remember that television is not the only way our kids are being exposed to commercials Sophisticated internet sites like www neopets com attract millions of kids under 13 and offer games in which kids win points by viewing commercials As a parent you have the power to limit your child s exposure to commercials Counteract negative advertising messages When you and your child are watching television and a commercial airs that suggests a brand name can make you happy or successful explain that this isn t the case Don t deliver a long winded lecture just note that people become happy and successful based on hard work meeting goals and knowing themselves You don t have to counteract every commercial you view Every so often however provide your child with some real truth in advertising Capitalize on teachable moments related to advertising At some point usually when you re in a store your child will see a product featured in a commercial and say she wants it Ask your child if she saw a commercial for the product and what happened in the commercial If it seems like the
