As our kids grow older we strive to have open conversations about different things like school and friends, but also about more serious topics like money. Money isn’t always the most fascinating topic to a kid, but once we involved our kids in financial conversations, certain things peaked their interest.
Most kids know that their guardian works and makes money. That money is spent on groceries, bills, and sometimes fun stuff. Helping kids understand the value of that money, how to create a budget, and spend money wisely gives them a good foundation for their adult lives.
