What does a 7 year old know about money? (We asked Ruby)

It’s so interesting to know what children know isn’t it? Sometimes they are just so much more clued up than we think and sometimes they so aren’t!

These answers are getting  a little more sensible as the children get older!

Love that she wants a 25p pocket money raise and seems to understand the price food. Understanding wages is a different matter though isn’t it ! Ruby mentions savings a few times in this interview…teaching her well Jen!
