Mathematics: Are we teaching our kids the right thing about money?

I was browsing through the chapter on 'Money' in the Mathematics Year 1 textbook. And suddenly it struck my mind, "Oh my god, are we teaching the right thing about money to the kids?"

Almost everything is about buying things in this chapter. " Buy, buy buy!" And the funniest part is there's this sub topic called "I know how to USE money!".

Sure we all know how to use money. But how about saving money and manage our money? We are feeding the kids with the 'spending habit' since they are in Year 1 already. Something is not right here.
