Some 88 per cent of children between the age of eight and 15 think their parents worry about their financial position.
This is according to the Halifax annual Pocket Money Survey and it also discovered 21 per cent of those questioned think their mums and dads have these concerns all of the time.
Only three per cent of respondents felt their parents are never anxious about their finances.
Richard Fearon, Head of Halifax Savings, said it is concerning that kids are worrying about how much money their mums and dads have.
"By introducing positive saving and spending practices from an early age, children can get into habits that will help them to manage their money as they grow up," Mr Fearon observed.
He went on to note there has been a positive movement towards children's savings recently, which should help little ones take control of their own finances when they are older.
Kids in London were found to worry the most about money (64 per cent), with youngsters in Yorkshire and Humberside (50 per cent) least likely to think about cash.
