1. What can parents do to teach children to save money?
Parents can do a lot to teach children to save money. Firstly, they can be good role models. If parents themselves do not squander money, children will learn the same. Parents can also buy piggy banks for children, which will encourage them to save coin by coin, and once they have enough, they can buy something they really want.
Parents can also teach their children the value of money, by giving them a fixed amount of pocket money each month and not topping it up with more money if the child finishes it before time.

2. Why do young people tend to waste money?
Young people tend to waste money because they want to show-off. They buy latest things and show-off to their peers. Parents also give them money instead of spending time with them. So, the young people have money with them to squander. They belong to a consumerist society, where the new products lure them and they just go ahead and buy them even if they don’t need them. They don’t realise the importance of money and sometimes if parents do not give them enough, they resort to petty crime also.

3. What kinds of things do people like to buy in your country?
India is a diverse country. People buy all sorts of things. They buy clothes, food items, household items, electronic gadgets, jewellery and so on.

4. Do schools in India teach anything about financial management? Unfortunately, in India schools do not teach anything about financial management. It is important to teach children to manage their finances in today’s consumerist society. So I believe this subject should be added in the school curricula.

5. Why is it necessary to teach teenagers to manage money?
Teenage years are the most impressionable years of a person’s life. Habits inculcated in these years last a lifetime. So, it is very important to teach teenagers to manage money.

6. How do parents give pocket money in your country?
Some parents give small weekly pocket money, whereas others give a monthly pocket money, so that children don’t pester them every now and them for money for small things they need everyday.
