Your children can learn to give generously, save wisely, and spend carefully–and you can teach them.Young children are captivated by Saturday morning television commercials pushing the next must-have toy. Older kids think they’re losers if they don’t keep up with the latest fashion trend. Young adults find themselves facing financial temptations–like the lure of credit cards–that seem too good to resist.
Behind all these sales pitches lies the dangerous promise: “You can have it all–just buy now and pay later.” Now, Money-Savvy Kids provides a workable strategy you can use–no matter what your financial history–to prepare your children for financial success today that will carry over into financial security for a lifetime.
