1. Patience: Passively apply patience with yourself in the financial planning process with each family member. Use patience to create and operate your family budget.

2. Kindness: Use kindness to move your family to another financial level of success. Kindness is a financial weapon in action. Never act rashly or insolently toward money. Using presumptuous and disrespectful behaviors to clarify the family’s financial situation to your children is inconsistent with charity. Take time to discuss in an orderly manner your children’s budget, spending and investment goals at your weekly family meetings. This level of kindness is mandatory for preparing your children to mirror back to the community excellent money management skills.
3. Generosity: Liberally investing and habitually maximizing your children’s financial portfolio before they graduate high school is an excellent form of demonstrating charity at home. Preparing your children to be financially responsible and accountability is an important and valuable aspect of family empowerment. The level of generosity displayed in the home will match the level of generosity your family is capable of giving to others outside the home.
4. Humility: Conditioning your family to become skilled in humility is exhibiting charity without the parade. Though often neglected, humility is foundational in positioning your family to lead successfully in the area of finance. Pride destroys families unwilling to identify the many opportunities for activating humility. Unlimited wealth is attracted to humility.
5. Courtesy: Being polite in communicating the family’s 90 day spending plan without disagreement in spite of your family’s current economic situation is expressing charity in a manner your children can easily understand.
6. Unselfishness: The true essence of charity is unselfishness. Having the courage to control the habit of overspending so as to secure your family’s financial future is experiencing charity without limits. The secret to changing your family’s financial situation for the better is hidden in unselfishness. The fear of not having enough is a trap many families never recover from. There are more than enough financial resources available on this planet for every family.

7. Good Temper: A well-balanced and mental disposition family has the potential to shift financial consciousness in their community, the school their children attend, and even the place they worship. Families with good temperament are quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to anger. The world cannot advance successfully without these families sharing this level of charity within the community. The only way to stop hostility, hate and the poison generated by toxic emotions is to begin demonstrating good temperament in your home. Once mastered visually in the home, children will begin to reflect back to the community a level of peace beyond human understanding.
8. Ethics: Being in accordance with financial principles that governs your family’s conduct is a form of charity that must be cultivated. Children are watching their parents for the correct response to spending, saving and investing. What financial morals do you practice at home before shopping? Can your children trust you to manage their financial destiny? When will you begin that education fund?
9. Sincerity: The truth in word and action is the meaning of sincerity to children. Practice connecting a physical action to the financial promises you make to your children. Words without the correct action sends a negative message to children. Children who are disappointed usually reflect the same behavior to their classmates and eventually grow up to become adults that do the same to their spouse.
