As society becomes more and more cashless, it is becoming harder to teach children and adults the value of a dollar. According to a recent article in USA Today, 24 percent of Americans indicated they do not use cash to make purchases, with 75 percent preferring to use credit and debit cards over other forms of payment. Gay Pustaver from Money Management Counselors says even the Tooth Fairy leaving money under the pillow gives kids the wrong idea about the topic.
Pustaver recommends using little pieces of paper and involving kids in the discussion when it comes to expenses to discuss how to deal with money.
