Talking to your children about money with Sir Chris Hoy

Season 1, Ep. 5

Financial education is not just about numeracy and being able to count coins and notes (though that’s certainly a part of it!), but recognising and responding to feelings and emotions around money. Having an open dialogue with children about money from an early age helps to ensure that they build healthy relationships with their money as they grow.

Olympic cyclist, award winning children’s author and dad of two, Sir Chris Hoy talks to our host, Jonathan Hart about why he felt it was so important to  introduce financial education to his young children. Throughout the episode we discuss the value of storytelling to boost children’s motivation in a topic, and Sir Chris’s experience of engaging with the Money Heroes activities at home.
