4 Things You Can Leave Behind for Your Children

Happy Chinese Family
Approaching the big 5-0, one word often pops in your mind whenever you’re with your family: legacy. What is the legacy you want to leave behind for your children? First, ask yourself what legacy means to you. Is it more of a material thing? Is it a valuable life lesson? Below we have listed some items and actions that you could leave behind for your children.
1. An Affordable Life Insurance Plan that Suits Their Needs

Your children are at the age where they are still exploring what life has to offer, getting ahead in their careers, building new families, and more. All of which you’ve experienced first hand.  

Knowing the ever-changing nature of life, one thing you can do to help them is to sign them up for a life insurance plan. The best type of life insurance for them would undoubtedly be term life insurance, which provides the risk protection for a certain term at an affordable cost.
 

2. The Garden

Gardening is therapeutic and relaxing. It would be a good idea to create your own secret garden. When the kids come to visit the family house, there will be an air of positivity because of the beautiful garden you have maintained.
 

3. A Friendlier Community

After retirement, you will have more free time on hand. If you’re someone who feels passionate about community work, get some of the neighbours together and discuss what issues in the community need to be addressed.

If you feel that safety is a concern, form a neighbourhood watch. If education is more of a passion, organize free tuition classes for the kids in the community. Doing services such as these will make you feel young again – and definitely inspire the kids to follow your example.
 

4. The Family House

Whether it’s the house the kids grew up in, or a new one you just recently bought, the family house should be where your children shared the most with you. It’s not just for the memories; the house could provide your children with a place to stay as they enter the working world.
