    42: Grand gestures and expensive gifts with Dr Jane Major

    42: Grand gestures and expensive gifts with Dr Jane Major

    When a gift seems very high cost compared to the income or wealth of the giver or the receiver, it can cause feelings other than gratitude. Questions arise about motives and expectations. Can they afford it and what do they want in return? And can I afford that? Some people give for the pleasure of giving, but some give to be recognised, to hide feelings of inadequacy or to place the receiver in their debt.
    What can we do to make gift giving a pleasurable experience all round? And how can we react when gift giving goes wrong?
    With Dr Jane Major, clinical psychologist and relationship therapist from The Room Between therapy practice.

    41: Teaching kids about money with Will Rainey

    41: Teaching kids about money with Will Rainey

    Have you ever thought that your children see you spending money in shops, but they probably don’t see when you’re saving, investing or paying the bills? So what are they learning about money from what they see you do?
    Wouldn’t it be great if you knew how to teach your children the right lessons about money at the right ages so they grow up with the mindset and habits to build wealth and be confident around money even from a young age.
    This week our guest is Will Rainey from Blue Tree Savings who is an expert in teaching kids to be great with money. Will makes money easy and fun with stories and games. He has ideas about how your child can practise money skills before they even start school, learning more and more as they get older, preparing them, step by step, for adult life.
    Will is the author of "Grandpa's Fortune Fables: Fun stories to teach kids about money".
