Our new Mason Jar money system has been in effect for several weeks now. The idea was to start helping the children understand the value of money, tithing and saving. It has been going very well until today.
I caught one of my precious angels removing all the paper money from their "Give" jar and putting it in their "Spend" jar. When confronted, the little one was dishonest.
Not sure how to handle it, I took him up to his room and put him in his bed for 10 minutes. After about 5, he called me in his room and told me 'the truef.'
As I explained why what he did was wrong, I mentioned that it was dishonest and that he took money from God. "That was God's money," I explained.
Through tears he retorted, "Na-uh. God did not make that money. It came from a factory!"
