Teaching Your Kids Early

The pre-kindergarten age is not too early to start teaching kids about money and instill responsible financial behavior. Young people are exposed to powerful marketing targeted at them on television and the internet. Despite earning money from chores or a job, they often overspend - with many building up debts in their teen years. Teaching kids about money early is crucial.

Modeling Good Behavior

A parent is their child's first teacher and primary role model. Studies show that parents have the most powerful influence over children's attitude, behavior, and values. When your child sees you shop wisely and save money by preparing healthy meals at home, it is a lasting lesson. American families are busier than ever, but even parents who are experts at multitasking have fond memories of the values that kept their family connected, conveyed lessons of frugality, and taught the benefits of cooking healthy meals. The book, Family-Friendly Money Recipe$ for Kids, features teachable ideas and tips for parents to be a positive money management role model.


Interactive Learning

Family-Friendly Money Recipe$ for Kids with supplemental resources offers detailed lessons that you can teach your kids about earning, budgeting, spending, saving, giving, borrowing, and protecting their money. It's designed with interactive, online, and downloadable resources, and experiential learning activities for pre-k to 12th-grade students.
