It’s My Money Week! Get involved with activities to teach your children about money

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

We need to do more to educate our children about money, so it's lucky that there are some great resources available - including our handy Pocket Money Savers infographic below

More than three quarters of 8-15 year olds have never heard of a current account1. And nearly half of 14-25 year olds don't understand the difference between being in credit and overdrawn on a bank account statement2?

This will come as shocking news to any parent who wants their child to have good money management skills, but luckily there is plenty of help at hand, especially this week.

My Money Week, run by Pfeg (Personal Finance Education Group) aims to help educate children about money and has lots of resources to help - you can find them here.

Our infographic also provides plenty of ideas in the form of 4 steps to teach your children about the importance of money.
