Understanding how to manage finances is an important part of your child’s growth. Like any skill, financial literacy needs to be taught. Here you will find info and tips how it can be done.

  1. It is never too early or late to talk with children about many management
  2. Help them to learn how to track spendings
  1. Show them how to identify the source of incomes
  2. Be a good role model by doing the same as you teach
  1. Emphasize savings
  2. Consider the digital help (Internet bank, app and etc.)
For younger children it is better to start with a simple concept: what money is and what you can do with it? Give them example for better understanding. For young kids, it may make more sense to set a short-term savings goals. You can explain to your child, for instance, that while they could spend their birthday money or allowance on a small toy, if they save their cash for a few weeks or months instead, they could later afford a larger toy. Piggy bank, a plain jar or bank account, giving young children a special place in which to store their savings is way to help them develop a strong financial education background. Let‘s day your child is comfortable with storing savings at a bank but it's still worth visiting the bank and opening account instead of doing it online. This trip could help a child to better understand what bank is.
This is also a good idea to explain to children that their money that the bank is simply storing their funds, not taking them away.
If child gets a regular allowance, encourage them to budget and tell them that this can help to not run out of cash before the next allowance day. If you take a vacation with your child, think about giving them a fixed amount of money for small purchases such as souvenirs and snacks for the duration of the trip.

To help with your child‘s financial education, we have designed the below handouts, which can be used as a guideline when talking with your child.

“How to talk about the money?”

Will help you educate your child about how money appears in your wallet and where it is spent, how to raise small but important saving goals and achieve them.

“Security when paying by card”

Here you will find information how to safely pay when using a card, protect the card‘s PIN code or what to do in case of an unexpected incident.

“Wishes and needs: how to behave with money and where it is advisible to spend it?”

Explains how to distinguish between wishes and needs, plan purchases and raise bigger and more important saving goals and achieve them.

Explain to your children that you have to spend money for various necessities, how much money or work you need for that. Also mention, that you can save for your dreams or goals to achieve. If you teach them to see the difference between wants and needs, it will be easier for him/her to understand why sometimes you do not buy something. To discuss financial situation and to make certain decisions. Possible topics for discussions: differences between cash and digital money; taking responsible loans; family budget; why are savings and investmens crucial. Make a grocaries list together. After shopping you can review shopping experience and result with whole family. Don‘t forget to praise your child‘s effort. Make an agreement to pay your children, for example, for moving lawn, vacuuming the carpets or helping out to clean the attic. Child is more likely to understand the value of money if he/she earns it independently. Encourage your child to spend about 80% of their money and save about 20%. It will be easier if he/she will have a clear saving goal. For younger children buy a piggy-bank it will be a fun activity to accumulate money. A bit older children could have a bank savings account and watch their savings grow online.

For example, who‘s paying for college, setting clear expectations of what costs he/she will have to encounter, without forgeting expences like housing, commodities etc. Slowly increase their allowances, but let them start to buy their own clothes, toiletries, tickets for concerts. This teaches what life really costs, the value of money and set future earning goals. Work together with your children to research online or shop to find the best price for an item they need. It will teach them to be less spontanious and more frugal. To discuss financial situation and to make certain decisions. Possible topics for discussions: differences between cash and digital money; taking responsible loans; family budget; why are savings and investmens crucial If your child does not have enough money for a certain expense lend them money. However, explain to them that you witl take a certain amount of money from their allowance with interest. This encourages to save money in advance, because it will cost less money in the long run for a certain expence.
