There's a survey out today by The Children's Mutual, which says two-thirds of parents think the economic downturn has helped them teach their children the value of money and 83% say they get their children to work for their pocket money.

What do you think are the best ways to teach children about money?

Any comments gratefully received

I explain to my children why we have to go to work and explain that everything costs money and why we cannot always buy what we want.My children are 7 and 3.
