Financial literacy for children: An ideal birthday gift
Celebrating a birthday as a child means so much more than just cake, presents and parties.
Turning a year older is a symbol of maturity which unlocks new opportunities to enter the grown-up world. These opportunities are evident and are about, for example, being able to go to the cinema without parents, allowed to be home alone when you are sick, and allowed to work for other people than your family. Becoming a year older is therefore an opportunity for increased responsibility and a higher independence too. Children's birthday presents follow this same pattern by confirming the new responsibilities.
But can you and should you give financial literacy as a birthday gift? Find out in this post.
