Financial Management

Financial abuse and coercion is when someone else takes control of your cash, other assets, your access to cash or how you spend. In adults or older teenagers, this can create vulnerability and affect confidence. It can affect your ability to escape an abusive relationship. It is important that children are taught from an early age to:

  • Value money and understand why it is necessary
  • Understand debt and financial commitments
  • Know about interest and APR’s
  • Know why it is important to save money
  • Learn about spending within means
  • Not allow people to use their name to apply for credit
  • Develop independence financially


At OLOL, we integrate financial understanding into the PSHEE curriculum but you may find resources here to support you in making your children money aware at home too.
