Ethos, Pathos, Logos and Financial Literacy
As parents, you want the best resources to teach your child financial literacy. With all the clutter on the internet, it is hard to identify which resources to trust. I say you go with Aristotle’s way! This may sound odd to some but there’s no reason we can’t apply his wisdom to today’s world of technology.
Aristotle’s 3 key rhetorical elements namely ethos, pathos and logos can help you make an informed decision when choosing the right financial literacy tools for your child. This is how.
This is the element of established credibility. Look into the company/individual providing the resource. Are they a credible source? You can gauge this by looking at their reviews, the background of study/field of expertise of the creators and so on.
This is the element of emotional connection. Is there a sense of purpose behind the company? What does financial literacy for kids mean to them? This is an important factor that parents should account for. Knowing that a company genuinely cares shows that your child will be in the best of hands.
This is the element of reason; logic. Make sure to do your due diligence by going over all the resources. Your children are in their prime years of cognitive development. Is this the right information for them to be absorbing? It’s essential to validate the effectiveness of the lessons before letting your child use them.
