Previously, we have spoken about how to initiate money-related conversations with your child. We understand that money is a vast topic and needs to be explained in a step-by-step manner.

Money is what that we use to pay for products/goods (toys, soaps, pencils, etc) and services (ironing, cleaning, etc) that we want or need.
A buyer is someone who buys the products and services with money. A seller is someone who sells products and services for money.
Money also does something quite interesting. It is one of the widely used methods for determining the value of something.
Exercise: Make a list of all the things that your parents have bought for you in the last one month.
We all have seen a 10 rupee note and a two rupee coin, haven’t we? In today’s world, money is seen mostly in the form of coins and notes. Would it shock you to hear that this wasn’t always the case?
In the past, people used the barter system to buy or sell things. Barter (verb) means to trade goods or services in exchange for other goods or services.
Exercise: Can you think of a time when you engaged in a barter exchange with a sibling or a friend?
Now we know that money is used to buy things that we need or want. We also know that often money is used to determine the value of something.
But, how does someone get money? Let’s get into that. People typically get money through either income, gifts, or prizes.
Exercise: Think of the different means you see in a day through which a person can earn income.
