Each week BusinessDesk and the NZ Herald’s Cooking the Books podcast tackles a different money problem. Today, it’s how to help your kids feel confident in the money world. Hosted by Frances Cook.

One of the big pitfalls when we start learning about money is that we can become evangelical about it – wanting to take everything we’ve learned and help those around us, saving us from the mistakes we’ve made. 

It can be disappointing to realise, then, that many people simply don’t care and don’t want to have that conversation. 

Particularly when it comes to our children. 

Kids of all ages are great for humbling you and making you realise that while you’re trying to teach them about something important, they’d rather be literally anywhere else. 

Giving them money skills is important though, because it gives them a jumpstart on so many important parts of life. 

So how do you have the conversation, and what areas should you be talking about? 

For the latest podcast episode, I talked to Bridget Lem, from PMG Charitable Trust.
