Today’s financial environment sets up unique challenges, including concerns over Social Security, sky-high college costs, and debt. Kids are more likely to make their buying decisions online rather than in stores. It’s important that children’s knowledge about money begins in the home. When parents actively teach their kids about money, it can contribute to their chances of future financial success.
Within Money Minded Families, parents will find tools for evaluating and improving their own financial wellness. They can also teach their children about positive financial health using the book’s activities, which are organized by age.
