Where do we learn about money?

Hands up if you secretly find that some of your adult behaviours seem to share an uncanny resemblance to those you have observed in your mum or dad.

For many of us, helpful and unhelpful patterns relating to the way we work, eat, love, fight, parent or even cook are passed down from generation to generation.

It’s no surprise, then, that our relationship with money is also heavily influenced by the financial commentary we heard, or even unspoken practices we observed, in the home in which we were raised.
