Money management skills are an important life skill and they help children not only financially later in life but also emotionally. It can assist them with their happiness levels if they know how to manage money. I am a believer that money can't buy happiness, but a lack of money certainly can cause stress and unhappiness.
Having responsibility to manage the household finances is scary, even a bit overwhelming at times. It's a big responsibility and it can be stressful. You know many often wonder if they're doing it right. Often, we just pay bills.
In many relationships, it’s common to have one partner manage the finances and the other partner takes a back seat. However, this inevitably ends badly for one of two reasons.
The pay gap between men and women is real. Although women have come a long way with gap slowly declining over the years there's still significant difference. Women working full time today take on home on average $241 per week less than men.
On average, women are retiring with half the superannuation of men, and women are generally living longer than men so that's a real problem. So why is there that superannuation gap?
Women are more likely to move in and out of paid work to care for children, so they are more likely to have unpaid work breaks. Women are also more likely to be engaged in casual and part-time work hence also resulting in a lower superannuation balance.
As a mum I know that parents are always trying to give their children the best possible start in life. And one of the ways that we can help our children is to ensure that they have a great education and a great school environment that's going to bring out the best in them.
Do you feel like you're living on top of each other? Are the kids taking over the whole house? Or is your home just too far away from school or work?
Whatever the reason for upgrading, here some of the considerations that you need to think about before you do.
Managing your finances well during this stage of your life will significantly benefit you and your family.
Joining your finances together or taking that next big step can be scarier than getting married. Financial stress is a real thing in relationships, and can often break relationships, so it's really important that you deal with it, carefully and with consideration.
There are almost 16 million credit cards in Australia and according to the Australian Securities and Investment Commission, 15% of Australian adults have problematic credit card debt. So how can you make credit cards work for you so that they don't cause you unnecessary stress?
Financial stress is a really big cause of relationship breakups. Original wedding vows include a promise to be together forever, for richer or poorer, but in reality, many couples find for poorer way too hard.
As a mum myself, I know that having a baby can be one of the most exciting, but also one of the scariest times of your life, especially for first-time mums. As well as learning how to be a mum, there's also significant financial pressure and considerations that come along with this stage of your life.
