What would happen if you put your kids in TOTAL charge of the family budget for a whole day? What would they learn? What would you learn? Will the entire budget be blown on LEGO?
@starlingbank set us this very challenge in this week’s special bonus episode. We gave our lads a budget for a family day out, and a Starling Kite card so they could spend and keep track of the money independently. Tune in to find out whether they wasted it all on V-bucks and sweets, and whose son spent the most on their Mother's Day present.
True story: we've been with Starling for years, and we're big fans of their work. It's super easy to apply for an account with them and their app is so simple to use. With Starling Kite, kids get a snazzy contactless debit card and their own version of the app, and you’re able to keep an eye on things and set limits all from your own Starling account. It’s a great way to get kids thinking about money for only £2 a month. We had a right laugh testing it out with our boys, so why not give the #StarlingKidsTakeover challenge a go yourself?
