Finances and Benefits

As your child gets older, they will want to gain more responsibility over their choices and decisions. Helping them to learn about money at this time will be an essential skill for the future.

Children may have dreams about what they would like to buy and earn in the future. By having discussions about money, they can learn how it works and how they can work towards these goals whilst maintaining a healthy perspective.
