Discussion of the commercial curve for guidance in the insurance jungle

Dear parents, dear grandparents, dear readers,

It’s time to talk about school again. Saxony’s Minister of Education, Christian Piwarz, has announced that school materials will be reviewed. The motto “We do not learn for school, but for life” should have more weight.

Personally, I can only welcome that. Looking back, I wish I had a few more life lessons when I was in school. Instead of the nth curve discussion, which I never needed again in my student life or in my working life, the correct management of money or the pitfalls of choosing the right insurance would certainly not have been a worse choice. Completing the prompts correctly would probably have been more helpful than interpreting Kafka’s fifth text. Of course, it was only after school that I realized that this adult world view would have been good at school. That was in the late 1990s.

And life has become much faster and more complicated in recent years. This makes it even more important to develop skills in school that are grounded in real life. Dealing with social media, saving resources, sustainability, increasing bureaucracy, owning your first apartment… The list could go on and on.

My nine-year-old daughter will have her educational recommendation in a few months. She will probably start high school next year. I hope that she will benefit from the adapted curricula for years to come. Of course, as parents, we still have a responsibility to prepare them for life in the best possible way. The school should at least be supportive. Not just with discussions of curves, Kafka, and looking back at World War II. But also with a realistic vision of growth. And just as the reality of life in society changes over and over again, the curricula must also change. My princess got to see for herself this week that schools can change, during a 1925 history lesson at the Eilenburg school museum.

Cover of The Little Book of Money

Cover of The Little Book of Money

Birgit Wetjen (author), Heinz-Peter Arndt (author), Sasan Pix (illustrator): “The little book about money”: It usually starts with pocket money – entering the world of finance. Coins and bills are exchanged for goods or services. Whether it’s muesli for breakfast, the bike to go to kindergarten, training in a sports club, a trip on the weekend – all this costs money. Some families have a lot, for others it is enough for the essentials. It is not always easy to make these connections understandable to children. Birgit Wetjen, editor-in-chief of the women’s finance magazine Courage, faces the challenge together with economist and business journalist Heinz-Peter Arndt. Together with the illustrator Sasan Pix, who has made a name for himself in the Berlin street art scene, they illuminate individual aspects on a double page each, in entertaining texts that are aimed squarely at young readers and their living environment into account. , as well as in colorful illustrations that cleverly break down the complex.

Because what seems so tangible quickly becomes complicated for children. Why does money come out of the machine when you insert a card? And where does that money come from, who does it belong to? What is a checking account? How to save or even increase money? And how can you do good with money? As we age, more and more questions arise that need to be answered. What do cryptocurrencies have? Interest Rates, ETFs, Inflation, Stocks: Money Background and Terms are explained from the ground up in this handy book, which is aimed at kids ages 8 and up and anyone who wants to dig into the subject. Because even if we deal with money every day, most of us actually know very little about it.
