Actionable Solution

 How to Teach Your Children About Money

STEP ONE: Start with a weekly allowance.

  • Start your children young with a weekly allowance. This allows them to reset each week if and when they make mistakes with what they spend their money on.
 
STEP TWO: Increase the sum of allowance as they grow older.
  • With age, give your children a larger sum, once a month or every other week to help them understand how to make it last over time.
 
STEP THREE: Make room for mistakes.
  • Allow your children to make mistakes and take ownership of their money. This is a message of empowerment. “We trust you. You have the money and you can buy what you can afford. You cannot come to me to buy it for you.”
 
STEP FOUR: Continue the conversation.
  • Keep an open and supportive dialogue around money to keep teaching your children about money.
