Money can be a confusing concept for kids. Most of the time they see the adults in their world taking care of business with the swipe of a magical plastic card. Or they hear us say vague things like we’ll “pay that online”. And in this current moment, they'll have likely overheard the endless commentary on the ‘cost of living’ - with its rather unhelpful tag word ‘crisis’.
Talking to our kids about money is an important and ongoing conversation, even if it’s not always easy or comfortable. How do we navigate it? “Money doesn't grow on trees” has traditionally been a starting point, but we can probably do better... right?
