For Families

Credit card and household debts are at record levels today. Children from a very young age are constantly bombarded with the latest and greatest must have products and are living in a “buy now, pay later” type culture.

Unfortunately, money management and financial awareness, two of the most important skills for anyone to have, are also two of the most ignored skills in most families today – especially when it comes to families with children.

  • Whose responsibility is it to instill these lifelong saving and spending habits in our children?
  • How do we ensure they are given the tools they need to avoid a lifetime cycle of borrowing and debt repayment?
  • How do we keep our children engaged and excited to learn about a subject that has not been effectively taught and approached?

When you consider the fact that today most families are so busy keeping up with their careers, dealing with their children’s schoolwork and shuttling their children to all their various extra-curricular activities, who really has time to concentrate on teaching money management to their children?

To make matters worse, unfortunately our school system is failing to take a leading role in educating students on the importance of money. The sad reality for many parents is that they were not taught the necessary money skills at an early age often resulting in having challenges with their own finances. Keeping that in mind it's no mystery why most parents don’t know how to teach their children about money.

How early is too early?

It’s never too early. The same lessons we teach our children about patience and discipline apply to learning about money. The key is to make it fun and engaging at an early age so they form the money habits they need as they start on their path to independence.

Why do parents have a hard time teaching their kids about money?

The truth of the matter is that it is a question of both time and knowledge. Many parents were not taught these lessons either, so it can be challenging to get that information through to kids. On top of that, life is moving at 100 miles per hour. We sometimes forget to find those teachable opportunities when we are just racing to keep life on track!

Should I just let school teach my child about money?

No. Currently there is little being done in the school system to promote the importance of financial education for students. Any attempts by schools to educate students on this subject meet real challenges when those messages are not consistently delivered at home as well. This is an important topic for all families, and we can help you get that dialogue going.
