Some of the most valuable lessons we can teach our kids are ones about how to use money wisely. We’ve all gone through some hard lessons with money, maybe when you were young you spent all your Christmas cash on something you never used six months later. Or while in University you used a bit of those loans for a night out here and there, only to rationalize it as necessary to your very existence.
