“This time next year Rodney, we’ll be millionaires”

“Teaching children about financial responsibility and encouraging their natural entrepreneurial spirit”

Following on from our recent blogs about ways to help our children learn to be sensible with money, we at The toadstool were interested to come across The Secret Millionaires Club Learn & Earn program which teaches financial literacy and entrepreneurship through activities for the classroom, home, and other settings.

If this is something as parents you’re interested in for your children, especially the older ones, it’s well worth checking it out.  The program was developed to extend the lessons of the Secret Millionaires Club webisodes which is an animated series featuring Warren Buffett as mentor to a group of entrepreneurial kids whose adventures lead them to encounter  financial and business problems.

 

The next generation.

The series uses real-life situations to teach the basic components of making sound financial decisions and starting a business. You can also go on line and download a series of family activities linked to each webisode to inspire your kids to learn and earn!

To find out more about the program or to watch the webisodes go to http://smclearnandearn.com and for those of you with younger children, have a look at our range of shop play food and other educational toys at www.thetoadstool.co.uk. They may not teach fiscal responsibility to your tots but they will definitely inspire them to learn and encourage their natural creativity and development.

  1. I think it’s right to teach children about money. It’s right to scare them a little bit with the gas bill and seeing how much things cost. Mine know we can’t afford Disneyland Holidays and stuff, and they have some understanding of why. I honestly think as well as the parents, young people should be taught far more in schools, so that they are better prepared when they start organising their own finances
