You might want to know, when is the best time to start investing in your child’s future? And when I say invest I mean putting away money for them for when they reach a certain age. The money should be used for their college education, or when they become an adult and want to purchase their very first home. Or better yet, if they want to embark on their very own business, the money will do them wonders. Now you have to ask yourself a very important question. When is the best time to start investing money in your child? Is it before they are born, when they are young, or a little later in age like adolescence?

what can you afford

Think about the amount of money you have to put away. Don’t put yourself in the poor house trying to save for your child. Understand that you have to live while you save. So you might only be able to put away $20 here and $50 there for their future. But over the course of 18 years, 21 years, or maybe that first house at 25 years, the savings is possible. Just be aware of what you can and cannot afford. Don’t try to stretch yourself out too far when putting away money for them. Understand that life is a marathon applies to saving for them like building your success.

it’s a family affair

Bringing your child or children in the loop is a good way to aid in their building of finances for themselves. When I was in high school, I had a job in retail, but didn’t save any money because the pay was so low I could only really afford gas. But what happens when you’re growing up in a house where parents already are in the process of setting money aside. You can now afford to assist considering it’s your money being built. And you have a disposable income, so you can actual put in more than your parents.

FOR LOVE OR FOR PAPERWORK: WHY WOMEN REALLY WANT A HUSBAND

Image result for marriage women

“It’s either I do, or I won’t continue.”


Women have always sought out to be wives. Even as young girls they are raised to find themselves a husband. They’re taught that you’re short changing yourself by settling for dating. But the things that women want pertaining to marriage are basic. So basic, do you really need marriage. Or was marriage designed and asked for, for different reasons other than the love. Because love is something you have which brought you to the marriage. There isn’t anymore, the love you have is the love you have. You’re not biologically this new person after you marry that you weren’t when you were not married. So what is it that you become? Can’t be about responsibility because you must be responsible prior to the marriage.

Marriage is the paperwork, not the love. What do I mean by the paperwork? Well, let’s first look at what marriage is in the first place. Marriage is the contractual obligation of bringing together of finances to assess if the relationship will last for the long term. Meaning, laying claims to assets in the case the relationship does not pan out. Which is a huge indicator into why women so desperately want to marry instead of dating. Women say it’s love or in the eyes of God, but it’s really in the event something happens to the man she can continue to live after he is gone. Now when I say live I don’t mean she is unemployed and he is the breadwinner. Even if she has a career along with him, her one income can not sustain the life of both when he was alive.

All of this makes sense considering woman would have to go through someone else if the man gets sick or dies. And what do I mean by going through someone else. I mean that if you and a man are not married you not considered in a lot of places next of kin; especially if he has siblings and/or parents alive. You may be put into a situation that they are able to dictate to you in the event something happens to him. You’re concerned with moving forward, while they are more concerned with a new man replacing their son or sibling. It could actually wind-up stalling your further progress in your own life.

So in the end, why don’t women just say what the real reason they want marriage is for; shame, that’s why. We shame women in society for being real in their intentions. We call them gold diggers for expressing what they want to marry for, a comfortable lifestyle. So they say love and compassion, yet you don’t need to marry for those reasons. We stigmatize them so much that they must now recontextualize what they want to fit into our male dynamics to make us happy. It’s why women make excuses of, “He may not have this and this, but he has this.” They lie about what they want because they don’t want to be judged on the truth. Yet they negatively effect our lives by manifesting what they lie about because they feel a moral obligation to please us in a male dominated environment.
