Lately we have been teaching our girls about the value of money. When I was growing up this wasn’t really discussed and I ended up not understanding the serious nature of debt. Hubby and I are determined to take a different route with our girls, our eldest seems to have a natural understanding but Miss Chelsea Belle hasn’t quite gotten it yet, she is still under the assumption that we have endless funds as long as we have a bank card available.
We think it is important for our kids to value money even at this age so they are able to make informed decisions and establish a healthy relationship with money in the future.
RBC Royal Bank has released a new iPad application, Learning Money With Leo which we have been using with Chelsea.
Learning Money with Leo features a variety of kid-friendly and interactive games (Match It game, Gather The Coinsand Spot The Differences)to teach your children everything from earning, to saving, to spending money.
As your child plays each game they’re able to earn coins, which can be used to buy stickers for their very own virtual sticker book.
The application is available for free from iTunes in both English and French. You can find out more tips on teaching your kids about money here on the RBC website.
