I try and teach my children about how to be financially responsible and I until yesterday, I was secretly a little bit smug about how well I was doing.
After all, Miss Frugal has a debit card and manages her money really well and Master Frugal does a great job of saving his weekly pocket money for something he really wants rather than wasting it.
But then yesterday, Master Frugal said something that completely wiped the smug smile off my face (and also made me laugh that hard that I nearly spat my drink out, but’s that’s not the point).
“When you leave school, how much money do you get to start?”
He’s now more than a little disappointed that I’ve just explained that real life isn’t like the Game of Life and you don’t get given money at the start!
