Freedom

August 14, 2018

“Everybody STOP!!! Something very important has happened!!”

 

As we marched along Myrtle Avenue, the line of children halted behind me waiting for their next cue. 

 

“I have found a penny!” I declared loudly. “Everybody repeat after me: I’m a money magnet!” 

 

“I’m a money magnet.” They repeated in unison, somewhat bewildered. 

 

You would be correct in thinking Goddess Camp is not exactly conventional. 

 

“Is money good or bad?” I asked my team of 5 and 6 year olds. 

 

“Good.” Most of them replied. 

 

“Why?” I barked back. 

 

I heard various renditions on ‘we can buy what we want’ …  

 

“That’s true!” I declared. “But the most important thing of all is that money gives us freedom to make our own choices. So we must nurture and look after our money.” 

 

Certainly this concept is above their heads at this young age, but seeing as the chance of them getting any financial education at school is as likely as the G train running on time, I figured that planting a few seeds early can’t hurt. 

 

The ability to make and manage money is one of the few ways that a woman can maintain her power. While the best things in life are free – money has the ability to help provide a woman with the most important thing of all: her freedom.

I’m Lucie, founder of Mischievous Goddess. I'm not yet a mom or an auntie and do not have hands-on experience in either of these roles. I was however a child once myself. I’m also trying to have a baby after a miscarriage. I work with kids on a regular basis and for many a year babysat kids of all ages. This was written to entertain and shine a light on subjects that are dear to my heart and to inspire all children to be wild, free, and most importantly themselves. I am not a childcare expert, or a certified teacher or nanny, or psychiatrist. All views expressed are my own.
