Insurance Coverage Every Family Needs

by Pam on February 8, 2017

If you’re a parent or a homeowner, you drive a car, or you’re trying to plan ahead for the future, you should never underestimate the importance of insurance.

If you don’t already have these forms of cover in place, it’s a good idea to start shopping around for the best deals.

If you live in an area prone to flooding or storms, you may find it beneficial to add extra coverage for flood or hurricane damage.

The Importance Of Teaching Your Kids About Money

by Guest on February 17, 2016

why you should teach your kids about moneyMany of our habits develop in childhood and therefore it makes sound sense to try and instill some good financial habits into our children at an early age, so that they are more financially prepared to cope when they become adults.

It often starts out with pocket money and if you have a few kids you will often notice that their different personalities include a varied attitude towards money, from spending without any concept of value to saving every bit of money they get, and everything between those two extremes.
