When my mom asks where all my money went

June 2nd, 2017 · No Comments · City Library, Main Branch, News, Teens, West Branch

Kapusta, cabbage, clams, bones, doubloons. Whatever you want to call it, money is always a hot topic.  Understanding how to save it and what to spend it on (and perhaps more importantly, what not to spend it on) is an important skill for kids to learn early.  Teach them good money habits now or regret it later!  The good news is there are resources here at the library and also at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that can help parents teach their kids these important life skills.

Books:

Make Your Kid a Money Genius (even if you’re not): a parents’ guide for kids 3 to 23

Making Allowances: a dollars –and-sense guide to teaching kids about money

For Parents:  Here are resources to help you teach your young child, middle schooler or teen how to save, spend, and develop an understanding of money.

And just remember,
“If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.” – Journalist, Earl Wilson

Good luck!
