Most of the adults might be thinking about they would have been able to handle money wisely if they were taught to do so if they were educated about the value of money as students. Even now also many students come of educational institutions without knowing the value for money and without any balance in their bank account.
Kids of younger age can be motivated to save money by giving them a clear jar to save coins. One of the advantages of having a glass jar is that the kids can see their money growing and it keeps them motivated about saving money for future. Another way to make kids aware of the importance of money is by setting an example. Having clear cut budget and managing that efficiently by parents motivate kids about handling money wisely.
It is possible to educate students about the use of money which can be used for different purpose. This will make them think to set money aside for other purpose instead of spending for worthless use. Showing students how other people of the same age is also helpful in developing an effective money management system. Giving commissions for doing certain tasks is also an effective way to know the effort taken to earn money.
