Not sure how to get your kids to understand budgets without boring them? Learn how a trip to the zoo gave our six-year-old a (fun) crash course on money!

Kids and Money

What happens when you put your 6-year-old in charge of the money? We ran a real-life experiment to help our daughter learn about managing money

In this episode we get into:

  • getting comfortable talking about money with your kid
  • how to let your kid learn about money without giving a lecture
  • working together to pass on money lessons

Hope you enjoy!
