Teaching Your Children to Handle Money: Be Honest

Let them practice while you can guide them

Children are aware of money at an early age, long before they go to school. Interactive discussions-rather than lectures-are most helpful in teaching your kids about money. Allow kids to ask questions, express opinions, and have input on decisions.

With young children it’s better to wait until they initiate discussions; even older children may be more receptive if they ask the question.
