Cash is sometimes still king
Seeing money makes it easier to connect the dots, especially for younger kids. Money boxes or piggy banks can help them develop the skill of setting goals and making sacrifices today to put them, and others, in a better position in the future.
Admit your mistakes
We all make money mistakes, this is how most of us learn about money. The next time you make one, like missing a credit card repayment, be brave and share this with the kids - it might help them avoid making the same mistake.
Learn the lingo
Understanding finance jargon is a big part of feeling confident about money. Introducing a new money word into the family vocabulary can generate questions, curiosity, and ultimately confidence, for everyone. Depending on your starting point, a money glossary like this one on the Sorted website might help you pick something new. You'll be talking about compound interest and risk profiles in no time.
Walk the walk
You're not only having money conversations with your words. Your kids are watching your actions and behaviours, and these will shape their financial future. Take the time to be deliberate in how you engage with money, and model something you're proud of.
