Get Kids & Teens Smart – Money Smart!

Welcome to Edfundo’s Financial Intelligence Hub – the smart money management resource for kids and teens – which will revolutionise the way our youth learn, earn, save, and spend all with full parental control. Edfundo – designed by two former teachers – does what its name says. It EDucates. Is FUN and allows youngsters to DO – because the founders believe that it’s only by doing, that people learn. At its heart, Edfundo holds a sincere belief and self-challenge to ensure financial illiteracy rates rise among our younger generations leaving them money smart and financially fit for a digital and cashless society.

The Edfundo Learning Lab is active, with the app and card not far behind allowing a host of interactive activities but with parents in full control. Parents can track their youngsters’ learning, earning, spending and saving. They can allocate chores and payment and help set up savings goals.

Get The Kids Money Smart With Our Tips Triple:

The recent ASDA’A BCW Arab Youth Survey 2021 should be a wake-up call for us all. Its findings showed that in our part of the world young adults are plagued by money worries. Now while Edfundo is on a mission to have financial literacy taught more in our schools, we, and our kids and teens, can’t wait, and home is where many lessons can be learned.

To get you started, here’s three top, simple tips to help you make your kids smarter with their money – lessons that will last a lifetime and leave them better prepared than the Arab youth surveyed last year.

Earn & Learn:

Money doesn’t grow on trees. You can say it as often as you like but the message might not get through. Better to get your kids and teens to appreciate the value of it by encouraging them to earn their pocket money through simple tasks – doing household chores around the house, taking the dog out for walks, cleaning the car. You could also encourage them to sell their pre-loved gadgets and gismos on eBay, Dubizzle or the like with all transactions under your supervision of course!

Incentivise!

Want to encourage your kids to save? Great. Then why not offer to match what they save in a set timescale or reward them if they receive a savings milestone! Should do the trick!

Get The Best Price!

When was the last time you took the kids to a real old-fashioned souk? If they’ve never been and seen bargaining in action – take them for a family treat and let them haggle. Shopping around is easier than ever in the days of online shopping and youngsters need to know that they

don’t always have to accept the first price, or product, offered. Have fun at the souk as they learn the benefit of comparing products and prices.
