The Parent & Teen Toolbox

May 18, 2021

Teaching your child financial literacy is one of the best life skills you can teach your child.

For some parents, money matters are not what springs to mind when they think of how best to support their children.

However, Laura Weston believes that having a healthy credit rating is even more important than the big milestones we tend to associate with growing up - like moving into your first home.

Our kids are no longer expected to have a ‘job for life. Conversely, they are now being encouraged to have a career portfolio - and a variety of income streams.


We are talking about how best to equip our children for more financially stable adult life.

In this episode, we discuss what parents can do to educate themselves and their children in understanding how to make your money work for you.

I have a resource that offers you tools to combat :

If you are looking for support at a deeper level for your child, then please book a call with me. Invariably they might only need a couple of sessions. But if we can give our kids the tools to improve their emotional wellbeing NOW - then you’re more likely to alleviate the longer term damage to their mental health.
