Frequently asked questions?

  • Can my child do this without my help (adult supervision)?

    No, as adult supervision is necessary. The diary was specifically designed needing parental interaction, and encourages bonding through the decision making process.

  • Do I need to know and understand finances in order to help my child?

    No, prior knowledge of money management is not necessary as the diary uses a self guiding process. Your role as guardian is to listen and allow the child to navigate their decision making process.

  • I can not afford to give my child pocket money?

    Actual cash is not needed as it's our modelling techniques and practical application that teaches the knowledge surrounding money. Play games like 'going shopping' with children using play money or imaginary money.

  • My child already uses a pocket money app, so why should I use a diary?

    Whilst we appreciated the modern apps surrounding children and money management, we believe that a diary should be used before embarking on any app. Working with money even on a sensory level, brings a dimension that apps can not replicate, and this is crucial to a child's understanding. This diary builds the foundation and solidifies the understanding that money is a limited resource; linking this to good spending habits. The diary also promotes parental interaction and conversation and reduces screen time.

  • My child is older than 7, can they use the diary?

    Absolutely. The management of money is a life long lesson with daily training. Scientific research has shown that self-regulation, problem solving, communication and self-esteem are formed in a child's early years that is why we recommend ages 4 to 7, but any age can use the diary as it teaches principles.
