Experts now agree: It’s never too early (or too late) to teach kids about money. Money is an excellent teaching tool — and kids will learn about money whether you take an active role in that education, or not.

The great news is that the daily routine of managing budgets, paying bills and finding that balance between working hard and spending time with family, can all become great teaching opportunities. Each task and each decision can be used to help teach your children about the value of money, the need to understand spending and saving and the importance of giving.

Here are tips and strategies to help your child learn about money, based on the age and stage of your child.

To truly level the playing field, we must move away from supporting women through a lens of equality and shift to one of equity that is inclusive of supporting them professionally and domestically – not one or the other. Women must be given the capacity - at home and at work - to support their families and meet their goals.  This means that both the household and workplace have a responsibility to alleviate mothers from some of their expectations.  For the family, in particular, stepping in to take care of chores provides them with the life and financial skills to understand their value and advocate for themselves in the future. Keep this inmind this International Women's Day.
