|New Jangle App coming soon|
I have no idea when it comes to cooking! My mum hated cooking and therefore spent next to no time in the kitchen let alone spend time in there with us kids! For years I believed roast potatoes were solid pockets of air and mum let me believe toad in the hole was made of fresh toads..... With that in mind, I purchased a children's cookbook and together with Max and I pick out a dish and make it over the weekend.
My mother is not a fan of electrics so showed both myself and my sister how to change a light bulb, how to change a plug (with a butter knife) and where the fuse box was at the earliest opportunity! All of which are very handy pieces of knowledge that I am now an expert in!
This was almost a taboo subject. A single mum raising 2 children on a shoestring budget we never really spoke about money - mainly because we never had any! Regardless of my financial situation, I want to be able to talk to Max about money, to show him the value of money and the value of your time. So I am rather honoured to have spent time with Experian, Pfeg and Sarah Willingham learning about and being part of the focus group for a new app coming out in the new year which helps primary age kids to save - Jangle.

I will be writing a follow-up post on Jangle with more details on how the app can be used and where you can download it, but for now, I just want to leave you with some facts from Experian that I found rather interesting!
Watch this space for updates on the new app to help teach your kids money skills, I'll be learning along the way too.
Do let me know what your thoughts are on the above facts, I must admit I'm quite surprised at 10-year-olds ordering online... !
