If you ask a five year old how many fingers they have on one hand, they’re happy to tell you by counting 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 before telling you five. If you ask them how many on the other hand, they start counting again. They do this so many times that they start to get the concept of math. Learning math starts with the concept, and the same is true for learning about finances. I know some adults who don’t know the concept of financial budgeting, and that’s where their problems start.You don’t have to make it complex. You can make a game out of it. List five things they enjoy, like shopping for something they like, eating something they like, or going somewhere fun, with the cost for each one. hen give them enough money for only three of those five things.
