Earn It, Learn It
Teach Your Child the Value of Money, Work, and Time Well Spent
by Alisa T. Weinstein
Alisa has an idea (excerpt from her Earn My Keep website):
Let's put four-to-twelve-year-olds in some real-people shoes. As Paleontologists. Astronomers. And Investigators! Because when our little ones become real professionals, they're exposed to a number of benefits: promotion of a lifelong love of learning, seamless incorporation of subjects like science and art, even quality family time (to name just a few). The end result is a better, more concrete understanding of how the real world works.
Here's how Earn It, Learn It works: you and your child select one of 50 amazing careers, then a kid-friendly task from the career's profile. Your kid completes the task within an agreed-upon amount of time and ta-da! It's simple, cheap, quick, authentic—and fun! The book is been built with the help of honest-to-goodness professionals who love their jobs (almost) every day.
So let's empower our kids. Nurture passion in our kids. Bolster their ability to learn. And teach them that earning a living doing something they love is hands-down the best way to earn a living.
