On a normal morning drive to work, I was hit by another vehicle. I was in a car crash. I honestly had never experienced anything like it before, and not just the crash but the adrenaline, the shock, the emotions afterwards. And most importantly, what was going to happen next. I was completely oblivious. I had people around me I could ask for advice or what happened when they had a similar experience, but it’s a pretty personal one isn’t it?

Even with items that they want like a new toy, or even a day out at Peppa Pig Land, the cost of everything is unlikely to enter their minds – and why should it? At a young age, children shouldn’t have to worry about how much things are costing you, or even worry about anything to do with money. However, it is important to begin introducing money handling into your child’s life so that when they are old enough to fly the nest, they know how to handle their finances and can avoid getting themselves into financial difficulty. Take a look at these easy ways of teaching your children how to handle their money.
