Screw Geometry, Let's Teach Our Kids How To Count Their Money First

The moment I became financially independent, I started spending. Little did I know I had no training on how to spend. I think kids should be taught how to manage their finances in school! That should be the most important subject, not the Pythagorean theorem. It's like, "Hey kids, don't worry about your credit card bills as long as you know all about the complicated relationship between the sides of a triangle." I mean, what the actual f*ck!

Understand Your Money Better With This Easy Tool

first came across the idea of a money biography when I enrolled in a financial wellness program in Bangalore. I wasn't really sure if I was suitable for such a program - I was a mom who had been out of work for almost four years, with no steady income of my own and no savings whatsoever. As it turned out, there is no 'right' type of person for such a workshop, and I learned a lot. An exercise called a money biography was particularly revealing, because it mirrors our unconscious money habits by helping us identify influencing factors known as money scripts, career messages, and role models.
