Alice is getting to the age where she is more aware of money, how much things cost and paying for items. It’s really important to us that our children learn the value of money. That they know how much things cost, that you have to save up and that money doesn’t grow on trees!!
We’ve been discussing recently to start giving the girls pocket money and how to best manage this. I’ve recently been introduced to Pigzbe which is a new way to do pocket money. Its a way to make financial education child’s play, helping kids 6+ to learn the value of money in a fun and rewarding way.
It works by setting up jobs for the child to do and when they do it, you tick it off and they receive a reward that you set. They can then watch their money tree grow. It helps children to learn the connection between work and reward.
Sign up to hear when the Pigzbe app goes live and, if you’re based in the UK, you can earn £20-worth of free pocket money when you subscribe. Invite friends and family and you can earn even more – up to £160! – just by spreading the word.
Pigzbe will send you your free pocket money when you subscribe to the Pigzbe App for 1 month. A Pigzbe app subscription is £3.99 a month for up to two children with a 1-month free trial.
You can find out more, by watching this video.
If you have a child that is ready to start learning about the value of money and receive pocket money, then this would be a good place to start.
Do you give your child pocket money? I would love to hear how you manage it and how much you think is an appropriate amount.
