Teaching our kids about the benefits of good money habits is a critical part of their financial development. It prepares them for adulthood and helps guide them toward financial success and a better life.

As parents, we understand the importance of financial literacy. Learning how to think about money and manage it wisely is an important life skill. We must patiently help our kids understand the many ways to control money. Our kids will learn by doing. Some lessons will be thrilling. Others will be frustrating, even painful. In the end, we hope that our children will grow into financially responsible adults. The rewards are life-altering: living within their means, free from the anxieties of debt, and secure in their future.

This section will give you tips and tools for teaching money literacy – and help you assess your ability to model good financial habits.
