Children and Money

Does your child beg for money, pout because he can’t have a new bike, complain because someone else has more spending money than he, save all his money, or spend it all as quickly as possible?

These are some problems that arise as children learn how to manage money. But there is more to managing money than spending and saving. Learning about money involves making decisions, learning how to share, learning self-control and getting your money’s worth.

These ideas plus many more will be presented for the program at the Marlinton PTA Thursday, February 20, at the Marlinton Methodist Church.

ESSAY

Norman Alderman, of Huntersville, won first place in the Essay Contest of the Farm Bureau. He was awarded a cash prize of $15. Second place and $10 went to Michael Crist, of Arbovale.

Alderman’s entry follows:

Why I Should Join the Farm Bureau

“We must all hang together, or we will hang separate.”

This is a famous saying that was quoted by Benjamin Franklin, a man who knew the meaning and importance of a united people. He put into words what the Farm Bureau has long been an advocate of. He knew that a united people could stand the trials of life although the adversary be great and mighty.

It is only through union that the farmer can become a force to be reckoned with, rather than be put to scorn for simply expressing his ambitions. The farmer truly can amplify his strength by joining a group which can speak for the farmer.

The farmer is an individual person who operates an individual business; however, in today’s modern government he tends to lose his identity as an individual. Modern business has proved that a trend is developing in that the working man is becoming more organized and is forming a stronger bond. These bonds will become stronger and stronger as man gradually unites to form a force that will not lose its identity in today’s fast changing world.

Today’s farmer cannot afford to stand behind the curtain of procrastination and let the world pass him by. If he doesn’t lift this curtain, a fast changing world will gain momentum and swiftly leave him behind.

The Farm Bureau has claimed a record that is a credit to the American Farmer and to those who have fostered the theme of brotherhood by working as a group of dedicated men and women.

The farmer can become an active voice in a modern society where man can only achieve his goals by cooperating with those who also have dreams for success.

I sincerely believe the Farm Bureau is a reality which can make each farmer’s ambitions a positive plan for success.
