Some of you may have been also following the Radio 4 Bringing up Britain series presented by Mariella Frostrup.
This weeks programme focuses on Money Matters and how kids should learn about money and how much we should tell them about finances.
With lots of pocket money gifted over Christmas, how do parents manage their spending and what should and shouldn’t they say no to? Bringing Up Britain plans to look at money matters by investigating how the subjects of money and finance are being taught at home and in school and what the most useful lessons are.
We are excited about listening to the programme, given the questions are all drivers as to why we created Roosterbank - which is designed to give parents a helping hand in addressing many of these issues. Roosterbank helps parents not only manage the practicalities of keeping track of pocket money comings and goings but also provides a fun, structured way to introduce kids to money and start having positive conversations that will help with their financial education.
Be sure to listen in and if you’re after some tips on how to give pocket money, check out our pocket money resources and tips section here.
