🇺🇸 What The US President’s Role Can Teach Kids About Money
As the USA welcomes a new President, we welcome the chance to talk to children about what the Presidential role teaches us about money – from campaign spending to budgets and more!
Who are they?
They’re the Head of State and Commander in Chief, able to take charge of the army, free criminals, pass laws, choose ambassadors, speak to astronauts, visit the Queen, and save one lucky Thanksgiving turkey! Yep, the President of the United States of America is pretty powerful. Yet one truly important role has nothing to do with saluting the troops or signing acts; one of the President’s most important roles involves money.
What does becoming a President have to do with money?
Quite a lot! In order to become a US President you need to raise a lot of money for your presidential campaign. A campaign is all the advertisements, rallies, debates and public appearances that presidential candidates make, in the hope of winning over voters. It can cost a lot.

🗓. New Year, New Pocket Money Routine
It’s a new year, a new start and a great time to introduce a new pocket money routine!
We spoke to Faith Archer (mother-of-two, personal finance journalist and money blogger at Much More With Less) about how she plans to use the new year to refresh her pocket money routine…
Deciding how much to give
My New Year’s Resolution is to review the amount I give. It’s tricky to know how much to hand out, but RoosterMoney has tips to help decide and useful research on how much children get at different ages.
I’ve been giving my two pocket money since they were very young. Even a four-year-old can have deep desires for penny sweets or Pokemon cards. Small children soon learn that different toys cost different amounts, and that by not spending this week, they can buy something slightly bigger next. But if you’re not comfortable handing out cash, you can start with a reward chart or star system instead. Check out this post for info and a free reward chart template.
New Year’s Resolutions
Pocket Money can also help get the kids involved with other New Year’s resolutions…
