Money Sense for your Children

Money Sense for your Children

Money Sense Logo

Welcome to Money Sense for Your Children, a series designed to help parents teach their children the skills they need to effectively manage money. The lessons cover topics such as:

  • Allowances
  • Where money comes from
  • Children and advertising
  • Saving
  • Spending plans
  • Strategies for teaching children of all ages — preschoolers to teenagers

Children have few opportunities to learn money skills other than from their parents. You may be surprised at how much your children already know about money. They learn by watching what you do with money. They also learn how you feel about money by the look on your face, listening to the words you use, and how your voice sounds when you talk about money.

Teaching money skills to your children is more challenging in today's high-tech world that includes debit cards, ATM's, direct deposits, automatic deductions, credit cards, on-line bill paying, and more. Let Money Sense for Your Children help you get started.

In addition to using the Money Sense for Your Children series to teach your children about money, you and your children can also surf your way to and through the multitude of financial education sites for kids on the Web.
