What do kids learn about money in school?
In my case, I remember learning two things.
First, that it’s good to save money. And second, that money is the root of all evil.
If you think about it, these are conflicting lessons.
Why would I save money, if my teacher says it’s the reason why many people do bad things, right?
Personal finance may not yet be part of our educational system’s curriculum, but that doesn’t mean we should not teach our kids the proper mindset when it comes to money.
That’s why I’ve decided to do another run of…
The Money Smart Kids Workshop
After our successful first batch last February, we’re bringing this innovative workshop again. And this time, it’s more interactive and more fun!
