Teaching Financial Wellbeing to Kids
This weeks Resilient Kid Podcast is with the fantastic Michelle Nicole Phelps. We are talking all things Kids and Finance. We talk about the importance of teaching children all about money. How to equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to manage their money effectively now and in the future. Michelle gives useful tips on how to talk to kids about money, whatever the age. How to get them to take financial responsibility and how to make it fun too. Ashley gives real life example with her kids, as you have come to expect and they both talk about the delayed gratification and its role in creating debt. Michelle's Top Tips -  Start early Evidence tells us that children’s attitudes about money are well developed by the age of seven. So, incorporate learning about the world of money into your teaching from pre-school upwards.  Put learning into practice Providing kids with experiential learning has been shown to be most effective. So when we run workshops in school they mainly include the children playing games, with regular check-ins as a group to see what lessons are being learnt, and what ideas they can take into the next round of games.  Make the most of everyday events. Financial education can be particularly effective if it coincides with an opportunity for the young person to put it into practice. For example, more detailed learning about banks and saving could coincide with parents taking out a children's bank account. 👉To get in touch with the fabulous Michelle on the socials -  😎Instagram @hartfordwealth  👍Facebook @hartfordwealth  💼LinkedIn Or check out her website or email - 🖥 📩 👉To Follow Ashley at The Resilient Kid -  🖥 or 📩email with any questions you would like addressing The Resilient Kid Free FB group is here - come on over! 👍FB page - 😎Insta - 💼LinkedIn - #parenting #kidsfinancialliteracy #resilientkids

Bullying Episode with Kids Author Sam Dean
I have a very special guest with me here today and that is Sam Dean.  So just to give you a little heads up before we introduce, Sam, you're here listening to the resilient podcast with me, Ashley Costello, psychotherapist of over 20 years as you all know if you listen well, less than hard, and today's episode is around bullying, and for Rosie it's real.  Well it's really prevalent at the moment, in society because we don't just see it in schools like we've always seen it but we're actually seeing it in the workplace. We're seeing it online, we're seeing it on social media and our children often can't get away from it, and so I came across this book, by some, and it was just a breath of fresh air because it really is a children's book, but it, it really addresses issues, but with such a funny and naughty feel to it, that you can't help but laugh, and it really gives us a sense of hope.  I think that's, you know, more than anything. What a fabulous podcast with Author Sam Dean who tackles the very serious issue of bullying in his book Timothy & The Triplets Three. Sam talks about his own personal experience, as well as working with troubled children in South Africa and extensive years as a Samaritan. Along with Ashley, they give tips and hope to everyone who this issue effects. Buy the laugh out loud Timothy & The Triplets Three here - Get loads of free resources and check out Sam's website here - Find out more about The Resilient Kid and more about Ashley work here   COMPETITION TIME - Email me a story of when you were bullied (or your kids) or when you were an ally and we will put you in a prize draw to win a signed copy of Sam's book (email
