Show Them the Money: Children’S Affective Responses to Spending and Saving Predict Their Spending Behavior

We examined children’s and parents’ affective reactions to spending/saving. Children’s self-reported feelings were associated with their spending in the lab, and with their parents’ ratings of their feelings, but not with parents’ own feelings. Furthermore, children’s feelings were stable across two years. We discuss implications for understanding the developing consumer.
