Recent literature indicates that the main goal of financial education programs is to motivate and empower positive financial behaviors to enable learners to become good financial decision-makers. Decision-making ability develop from childhood and is closely related to specific components of prosocial behavior such as: fairness sensitivity, altruism, and intertemporal choice. In order to improve these skills, we designed a conversation-based training program for primary school children aimed at stimulating reflective thinking through class discussions. This chapter describes the theoretical framework of the training program, design process, and materials used, and discusses the qualitative evidences resulting from the training.
