Are you frustrated by your children's attitude towards money?

  • Annoyed that your children don't seem to understand the value of money?
  • Stressed out by your children constantly asking for things they don't need?
  • Angry that there is no end in sight to their wasteful behaviour?
  • Want an easy way to improve your children's financial literacy?

If you are tired of seeing your hard-earned money being wasted by your children and need it to stop, you'll want to know these tricks to talk to your children about money ... and start changing their money habits!

5 Ways (Medium) edit

You want your children to be financially literate ...

.... but financial literacy is simply the end result.  The process of being financially literate begins with developing good money habits.

Cultivating habits takes time

To be exact it takes 66 days to cultivate a new habit. 'Children grow up so quickly!' In the last 66 days, have you talked to your children about money?

The most common excuse - I'm no good with money

You don’t have to be a financially savvy parent to develop good money habits in kids.

You don’t have to be good at maths to develop good money habits in kids.

You don’t have to have a lot of money to develop good money habits in kids.

You don’t have to come from a wealthy family.

Children from 'poor' households do just as well as children from 'rich' households in financial literacy and in fact, outperform those in the middle income households!

All you need is the desire ...

... to have conversations with your children. Unlike other conversations that you will eventually have to have with your children (such as Where do babies come from?) money conversations must take place frequently for it to develop into a habit. 

Still not sure how to do it?

Learning the theory about how to talk to children is one thing. But having examples to see how it really works is quite different.

For a limited time, I am offering all subscribers a FREE insight into practical examples of how I talk to my own children about money matters in Money Conversations With My Children.
