Financial Literacy for Your Children

It’s never too early to develop good money habits.

Studies have shown that children develop money awareness as young as age 3. Money-related habits, that will affect the decisions they take throughout their lives, can be set by age 7. Children can already identify as a spender or saver at this age.
