DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


Leave a quick note in your preteen's backpack today with the following, "Go make it a great day! Think about how you can best use your time and talents today." 

 MEAL TIME


Q & A for kids: Would you rather have unlimited free time or unlimited money, and why?
Q & A for parents: What was something you had to save up to buy when you were a kid? How did you treat that thing once you got it?

 DRIVE TIME


While in the car have your preteen download an app onto their tablet or phone called Quality Time. This app will record how much time is spent in each app on their device, as well as, how much time is spent overall on the phone. Tell them you will also download this app on your device. The next week, share with each other what surprised you and what you might do differently moving forward.

 BED TIME


Read 2 Corinthians 9:6-7. Parents, brainstorm with your kid ways they could wisely give, save, or spend the money they have—whether it’s an allowance, money for doing chores, or birthday money. Choose at lease one thing to do this week. Then, together, ask God to help them make wise choices in how they use the money that He has given them.
