Are you wondering what you should be teaching your teen about money? I have found this awesome resource! It’s called 5 Things Parents Must Teach Kids About Money. There is also Millionaire by 51. I have heard the guy speak who developed these 2 programs. He’s a bit dry, but his ideas are easy to implement, and so useful as we teach our teens!
Beyond the Crashing Waves -Mirren
I loved this book! It is about a time in history that I knew nothing about.
Mary Roberts is a poor gutter child living in a council flat in 1950’s London. When she and her sister are left at an orphanage by their mother, they don’t think their lives can get any worse.
Harry Evans is an orphan who finds himself, with Mary and her sister, on board a ship bound for Australia. They’re sent to a farm school for children, where abuse and neglect are rife. A journey that will change their lives forever, and from which they’ll never return.
Married to her dream man, and with a baby on the way, Dr Mia Sato’s life is in perfect order. When her beloved grandmother has a fall, the photograph clutched in her hand prompts Mia to ask questions her grandmother isn’t willing to answer. When she cries out a confession that rocks Mia to her core, it leads to a shocking discovery of a past filled with lies, broken families and forced child migration.
Some great shows that we have binged lately:
America: The Story of Us: Basically what it says, an interesting series about American history. (Amazon)
Jack Ryan: This has been a fun one to watch if you like spy/thrillers! (Amazon)
Designated Survivor: This has been around for awhile, but until this winter, we had never seen it! (Netflix)
Ticket to Ride -This game is so much fun! It is all about travel and earning points for the longest routes you can take. Visit some cities while you are stuck at home. One way to extend would be to look up some of these places while you are playing!
There are lots of versions which I did not know! Here are a few…Ticket to Ride-with Alexa, for younger kids there’s Ticket to Ride-First Journey, and Ticket to Ride-Rails and Sails.
Have you heard of Scrubdaddy? Guys! This is the greatest thing! I got one as a hostess gift, and thought, “What the heck?” But, seriously, I LOVE it! They are everything that the packaging says and more. Plus, they are so cute:) Try it out!
