Financial Literacy For Kids
Personal finance is oftentimes something that is first learned outside the classroom. When we were kids, perhaps the education we receive came from the financial habits we see around us– the TV, family and friends. Some of what we learn may be positive. But more likely, we are picking up incorrect or distorted ideas about money and financial management from what we absorb around us.
Whether we realize it or not, our early relationship with money did impact our finances as adults. This is why it’s so important for us adults to help our children acquire the knowledge and skills they need to build healthy financial habits down the road.
Our guest in this episode will share with us a wealth of knowledge about teaching kids financial literacy.
