    Mo Money $$$: Lessons On Management

    Mo Money $$$: Lessons On Management

    Talking with our kids about managing money starts at a young age. The lessons can be simple and geared around making good decisions. Children want candy, toys, video games and almost anything shiny they see in the store lol. They need to know they can’t have it all so choosing this may mean they can’t have that. This builds in critical thinking and considering the consequences of actions, an important part of maturity.

Worth listening in

Love tuning in. So many worthwhile conversations. Enjoyed the talk on financial literacy. So much there to research further and adapt to our children. Keep up the good work!

Thought Provoking

An interesting take away thinking of a disney movie as a resource for family lessons on social justice, equality, and racism. It is a fun movie but this podcast puts it in a different light. Good attention to detail and the first person experience can be felt in the examples given.
