When to start talking about money with your kids
Aussies may have a natural reserve when it comes to talking money. But as parents, teaching our kids to be financially aware and responsible takes more than a few quick lessons about money and the opportunities and pitfalls it can create.
Teaching opportunities will come and go as our children grow. If you’re a relaxed sort of money parent, then maybe you’re happy to freestyle and just take these chances as they come. But if you’re keen to create teaching moments by design, it can help to know what other people do and when are the best windows in your child’s development to introduce new financial concepts.
