In today’s short and sweet episode of The Fiscal Fitness Podcast (back when it was still called The Saver and The Spender), Kelsa goes over one simple yet powerful conversation you can have with your child about money. Starting at age two, this conversation can help your kid start to form a positive relationship with money and work.
From the episode:
“You want them to learn that Mommy and daddy go to work every day in order to help somebody, and they earn money when they do that. That’s it. It’s really quite simple. The idea of giving them a connection to where you are going everyday to the fact that its a job, but a job you are doing in order to help somebody. Even if you don’t love your job, you’re adding value in some way, and that’s what you want to point out to your child.”
