Topic:Should children be taught about finance?

Christophe: Hello, I am Christophe from Belgium, and this is Aiste from Lithuania and for elllo.org this is the question of the day: Should kids learn about personal finance? Aiste, what is your opinion about that?


Aiste: Well, I think it should definitely learn about personal finance, so opinion any kids shouldn't be a lot of money, and shouldn't think that money just appears when you go to your mom or dad and say, " I want this. I want that - and - please give me money for that, so if the kid feels that money is a limited thing, I think that's the first step to learn about personal finance. What's your opinion, Christophe?


Christophe: Wait! But you told me that when you were a small girl, you went to your daddy and you said 'Daddy, can I have money, please?' and it was all the time like that.


Aiste: Yes, but my amount was kind of limited, and every litas I got, that's the currency in my country, every litas was counted for a certain purpose, so my dad knew exactly that my transportation costs would be two litas and I had five litas for my lunch during the day, and that was it. So it was really ... because I used to go to school for a kind of locked time and I had to each lunch, and so because he knew that, I couldn't have any extra money that I would use that for for example, if I would need some puzzle, or I would like to go somewhere, I couldn't actually save unless I didn't eat. So the money was actually limited, so I could feel that this was not just get as much as you want.


Christophe: So what you're saying is that you learned about personal finance?


Aiste: Yes, I think so.


Christophe: So that's good.


Aiste: Well, probably.
