Getting By The Rough Road In Life

My last week was so rough. I do not know exactly why, but all week my body was in severe pain. I still had to go to work, had to get things done at home, and had appointments. Then the weekend came and I decided to take it off.

Going Through A Rough Week You Deserve A BreakGod is love

We all need some time off from life. We need time to relax, to yourself, to go fishing, to catch up on things that you have wanted to do for a long time. This is not selfish as long as it is not done on a regular bases. We all need a peace of mind, to come back to one’s personal reality away from all the stress in life.

Under A Lot of Stress That No One Will Understand

We all have our major stresses in life. You may think that no one will understand why you are so stressed out about it. You may be right to a point. People around you may not be able to relate to what you are currently stressing about, but you are also wrong. Everyone has had a major stressful point in life. You may not see their stress relates to yours, but to them it does. You have a major stress talk to a friend you are close with. Explain why you are stressed out, then they will be able to relate to it. They maybe able to offer advice, compassion, and moral support. This will help you get through your “rough road” because the road will begin to get smoothed and you path will open up.

Nothing Will Ever Go Right Again

We all go through hard times and life, some harder than others. There is a reason for these. According to The Holy Bible (King James Version) God puts us through test known as trials and tribulations. Here are a few scriptures that may help you through some hard times in life.

  •  1 Peter 5:10 – But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle [you].
  • Romans 12:12 – Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
  • James 1:2-8 – My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;3 Knowing [this], that the trying of your faith worketh patience.4 But let patience have [her] perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.8 A double minded man [is] unstable in all his ways.
  • Joshua 1:9 – Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God [is] with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Joshua 1:9 is one of my favorites. So many of us are afraid to take a chance in life. To take a leap forward, even if we will get out of the hole. If you have Faith in God then He will be there for you. I tell He is because I know. If it was not for Him I would not be blogging today. Evil thoughts have gone through my mind the last couple years, but my Faith kept me wanting to move forward. I had thoughts of suicide, but He spoke to me that it would not solve anything. He has been there my whole life for me, that is why I love the Lord God Almighty and Jesus Christ my Savior. If you are interested in more about God, Jesus, Faith, or Salvation drop a comment.

Lessons In Life Are Learned Early

We might not know it, but some simple things we learn as a child can really impact us for the good as adults. If we do not learn as a child we should not blame our parents, because there is many ways to learn a life lesson. Sometimes children are not given money, chores or pets because of lack of trust, religion, culture, or a parent’s childhood. One thing we all need to remember we are all unique, we learn different ways than others.

Looking Back To Childhood

look back on childhoodWhen I was a child I was given responsibilities. These were chores I was suppose to get done everyday because I was the man of the house. This confused me as a child. I am the youngest of two, I have an older sister, and at that time my Step-Father was more than able to take care of chores around the house. I saw it as they were trying to push “work” off on me. I thought, “If I have a job then I won’t have to do this dumb chores.”. I was such a fool when I was young. Although when I got my first job, it was a summer job, I felt appreciated, felt accomplished, felt like there was a meaning for what I did. It was encouraging to me. I thought at the time it was just the paycheck, but now I think it is more.

What does a paycheck mean to you?

When I got my first paycheck I felt accomplished. My first week was so stressful. I wondered if it was worth it, but the paycheck told me it was. We get a check either weekly or bi-weekly and it makes us feel the job is worth the effort because we need the income. Although when you were a child did you really know what feeling accomplished was like? I mean parents say “Thank-You” or “I appreciate” is great but giving an allowance not only makes a child feel accomplished it teaches the life lessons on budgeting.

How an allowance can teach a child money management

There are many ways a child can be taught money management. An allowance is the best way. Bank of America has seven tips on better money habits.

  1. Know your child– When your child gets to a certain age they will come to an understanding about money. An allowance allows your child to understand about the difference between buying a video game or renting a video game.
  2. Decision, Give An Allowance For Good Grades or Doing Chores– Sixty-one percent of parents give their kids an allowance for doing chores, as 48% give their children an allowance for good grades. (According to the American Institute for CPAs). Now rewards for good grades is a great idea, but there are mentally challenged children that may not be diagnosed later in life. Paying for doing chores may not sound like a great idea, but can teach responsibility. Let’s say they are responsible for five things a week and you would pay them $5.00. They agree but you set conditions. The first I would set would be a dollar per chore so if they only do 4 out of 5 they will only get $4.00.
  3. Chores Are A Good Idea– According to the AICPA, 89% of parents require the children to earn their allowance. According to financial experts, allowance is a learning tool and should not be tied with chores. If you agree with this then you can encourage your children to help out around the house and give the allowance as a reward.
  4. Make the decision on how your child can spend their allowance– You may think you wouldn’t have the right, but you do. The Government makes laws on when and how we can spend our money legally. We are not allowed to buy alcohol before we are 21. Well I am sure most people had their first job before then. So as a parent you can limit spending on video games, toys, educational, school, recreation, saving, donation, and more. Make rules and if the do not follow you can “Fine” them. You can do that by holding a week’s allowance or by having them pay you.
  5. Teach How To Save– Saving is important at any stage in life. It does not matter if a child wants to save for a video game or an adult wants to save for a car or home. Saving is important! We never know what will happen tomorrow. Teaching a child to save while their still in elementary school can encourage the teenager in high school to save for college.
  6. Is Charity Required– Make the decision as a parent if given to charity is required. I grew up as a Christian and still a Christian today. I believe in giving 10% to the church or those who need the help. It depends on religion and culture in your family, but giving to a charity is always good. Let them choose as well.
  7. Determine the “Do Not Do” list– Give your children a little free way but you have the right to tell them what is off limits. It would not be good if your child goes and spends money on junk food or just toys.

So now do you think giving a child responsibilities and rewarding with an allowance is good? Should they just get an allowance to learn how to manage money? Maybe you think an allowance is just another cost to you because you get the kid what they want? I want to know you opinion. I have mine. I think children should get it as a reward. They should also lose part of their allowance if some of their chores are not done. Actions have consequences. What do you think?
