Financial Literacy / Parents

Many parents understand that raising children require more than providing food, shelter, and clothing. Parenthood extends to providing our youth with tools that will help them become independent and productive citizens in our society, and this includes teaching them about how to manage money.

So, when do we begin to have the “talk” with our children? We can talk to them about money as soon as they are able to understand basic math, learn how to pronounce alphabets, or ride a bicycle. The earlier the better.

The resources provided are designed to help you introduce personal finances to your children. We encourage you take advantage of the education videos, talk to your child about earning and saving income, making smart money decisions, and planning for the future.

Chalk up some quality time with your favorite little human and explore at your own pace.
