Teaching kids good money habits

Get the skills to help improve your children’s financial literacy.

Produced by the City of Sydney

Pocket money. Should you pay it to your kids or not?

Join lawyer, accountant, lecturer, mother-of-3 and founder of Kids Money Habits, Amy Koit. She’ll lead a series of talks for parents and carers to help their young kids become financially literate.

We’ll explore the tools for teaching primary school-aged kids about money and pinpoint daily opportunities where parents can apply the lessons.

In these 3 interactive sessions, find out what financial literacy means, the significance of chatting about money with kids, and how to introduce different money concepts at home. Participants are encouraged to come with questions and tips that have worked for them in helping to build their children’s financial literacy.

Thursday 5 April, 6pm-7pm
Explore what earning money means and the pros and cons of putting plans like pocket money and paid household chores into action. Share and brainstorm ideas for helping young kids earn their own money.

Thursday 3 May, 6pm-7pm
Saving is more than putting away money to spend. Explore 2 notions of saving and how developing good habits is relevant in other aspects of life. Discuss types of goal setting and how to measure and motivate children in achieving them.

Thursday 7 June, 6pm-7pm
Kids are no strangers to seeing money spent, so the notion of teaching them to spend can be challenging. Discuss how to best educate them, and the difference between spending and using money.

Amy Koit looks at finance from all angles. Seeing the deficit in building healthy financial foundations, she investigated the many methods of teaching financial literacy, before developing her own.
