Teaching kids (even adults, TBH, LOL) about finances is not as easy as ABC, but with the help of the right tools, any parent can make their children financially literate.
Pru Life UK has launched “Cha-Ching Kid$ at Home” online resources to help and encourage Filipino parents to teach key money management concepts to their children at home. This initiative was developed by Prudence Foundation, the community investment arm of Prudential in Asia and Africa.
Designed for children aged 7 to 12, “Cha-Ching Kid$ At Home” materials can help parents teach kids about key money management concepts such as Earn, Save, Spend, and Donate. Each guide directs parents to relevant music videos, topics for discussion, and activities to help their children put learning into practice. The parent guides are downloadable for free on the Cha-Ching website and can be viewed online or printed out.
In addition to the parents’ guide, Prudence Foundation is also rolling out Cha-Ching daily challenges, which include activities or discussion pointers, posted on the website every weekday of June. Each challenge takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, aiming to encourage parents to incorporate discussions around money with their children as part of their daily life. The guides are in English and will soon be translated into Filipino versions.
The Cha-Ching website also contains a resource center where teachers can easily access the digitized version of the Cha-Ching curriculum teaching materials for self-study or review. Educators can simply log onto the Teacher section of the Cha-Ching website to download the Cha-Ching curriculum’s master list of teaching aids, session implementation video guides, music videos, and comic books on their personal electronic devices.
Cha-Ching teachers can also freely equip themselves with materials of the in-class and take-home activities that they can repurpose for their students. This initiative will help expand the reach of Cha-Ching across the Philippines and promote money-smart knowledge among students.
