Are you ever really sure you know what you’re doing?
I regularly check in with our investment decisions and more importantly what my wife and I are doing as parents. No different than investing, a custom approach is best and kids with their personalities is no different.
Admittedly I’ve taught my kids some controversial things and today is international bully awareness day so I thought I would share. My son enjoys hitting and wrestling, my older daughter not so much so I’ve told her to tell him to stop, if he doesn’t, walk away, if he keeps pestering you then hit him just not in the face.
I know many don’t believe in violence but from everything I’ve read on bullying and from my experience, there are people out there who don’t understand words, such as bullies so I view this as a learning experience under the safety of our home. My daughter learns to stand up to bullies and my son learns that unacceptable behaviour will result in being hit by the victim.
Even though their fighting drives me bonkers, to see how they are best friends makes it all worth it. Here they are, my daughter is riding my son’s bike because she got tired of riding her scooter and my son is copying me how I was pushing my daughter when teaching her to ride without training wheels.
My family is my motivation to work hard to afford more financial freedom and financial peace. Financial peace is a term I first heard from this week’s guest who is mega successful thanks to his TV show The Everyday Investor but he has peace as he does very little other work other than starting his own church. He has peace as he called his phone company to remove the texting function from his phone and he deleted all of his social media.
Rav was a Realtor and owned his own brokerage plus several investment properties but the lifestyle of hustle and demanding schedule did not suit him so he stopped being a broker and sold all his investment properties. Instead Rav focuses on his producing his show and others, teaching others how to invest passively in land developments. But by far the majority of his time is spent with his wife and two teenagers. Financial Peace indeed as Rav is rich yet his favourite store is Old Navy and the only car they own is not fancy and over ten years old.
