Setting savings goals is something that you are probably already very familiar with as an adult -you may have picked up from your job or by experience. However, it isn’t just something that just comes naturally. Teaching your children the power of goal setting is important when they learn about money management. Mark Stevenson, Managing Director at Bell Partners agrees that the earlier you start introducing the concept of saving money to your child, the better.
“It’s all about talking with the students in a way they can all relate to whether it be paying for houses, cars and holidays or if it’s pocket money and part-time jobs where you might be saving to buy clothes or the latest gadget,” Mr Stevenson said.
