More and more often we are hearing that kids need more financial education. I couldn’t agree more! If you’re wondering where to start, here are some fantastic resources:

Dave Ramsey is a well-known money management expert, and lists great principles for teaching both teenagers and young children about money here: https://www.daveramsey.com/blog/how-to-teach-kids-about-money.

The original “cheap guy,” Clark Howard also has some wonderful tips for teaching your teen to manage money responsibly: https://clark.com/personal-finance-credit/5-money-skills-every-parent-should- teach-their-tee/

For even more information, check out the National Credit Union Administration’s Financial Literacy and Education Resource Center, here: https://www.ncua.gov/consumers/financial-literacy-resources. There
is a wealth of information available there, from webinars and articles to hands-on adventure games to help teach kids about money. Definitely check it out.
