That was my young daughter's response when I asked her why there were coins scattered on the floor of her room. I told her I was going to vacuum and the coins had to be picked up. She ignored me. My response was telling her that if I had to pick the coins up I was going to keep them. She shrugged her shoulders and said it was fine.
Over the course of the next few weeks, whenever I vacuumed her room, I put the coins I found into a jar. When the jar was half full, I took it to her room, dumped it on her bed and told her to help me count it. It totaled nearly five dollars! I scooped the coins back into the jar while talking out loud about what I was going to buy with the money. By the look of disbelief on her face I knew my little experiment had been successful.
I never again found coins on her floor. What have you done to teach your children about the value of money?
