Do your children know the value of money? #thinkmoney

October 1, 2013
Children live in this blissful world where they don’t need to worry about making money, keeping tabs on how they spend it and how much everything costs. So when I was sent this sweet video where the makers had asked several children their thoughts on money I suddenly realised just how misguided our children really are.
After watching the video I wondered what Roo’s thoughts on money were so I decided that I would ask her the same questions to gauge her understanding on money. Please take a look at how she answered…

As you can see some unexpected answers, I think I have my work cut out explaining to her that Mummy & Daddy don’t earn anywhere near as much as she thinks we do.
Fancying joining and seeing what your little ones thoughts are towards money? Simply ask them the following questions…
  • How much does a house cost?
  • How much does a car cost?
  • If you had all the money in the world, what would you spend it on?
  • How much does Mummy or Daddy make?
  • Who is the richest person you know?
  • Where do you think money comes from?
I’d love to see you blog posts and/or videos so please do leave the link in the comments if you decide to join in (please include the hashtag #ThinkMoney).
