Teaching Kids Money

Teaching Kids Money

Every parent undoubtedly wants the best for their kids, and most parents are committed to teaching their children about money, however, it's often the lessons we don't intend to impart with our kids that have the biggest impact on them.

In this episode of The Money Podcast, Justin Harrison and Dawie Bester talk about teaching kids about money.

"Children learn far more from the things we do than the things we say, but often the things we say in passing are also the lessons that stick," says Bester.

"In this episode, we want to encourage you to become an active participant in your child's financial future."

Meanwhile, with life expectancy on the rise thanks to better health care, disease control and less physically demanding jobs, most people now face the prospect of living longer. Last week in The Money Podcast, Justin Harrison and Dawie Bester talked about living a long life, and how to plan for this financially.

The problem is that whilst life expectancy is on the rise, financial planning around extended life expectancy has not quite caught up, and it is expected that in the next 50 years fewer and fewer pension plans will be able to support the ageing populations of the world, and so now more than ever it's become essential to create a financial plan that could support you living to a 100 and beyond.

Join Justin and Dawie for this episode as they discuss how to create a retirement plan that will outlive you and continue to provide returns for your family long after you are gone. Click below to listen.
