Teaching kids about money does not have to be complicated. Financial Literacy month is a great opportunity to introduce kids to money and get them comfortable using it. Believe it or not, children have personal finances in the form of birthday money or allowances. Teaching children good money habits early on will foster better money management habits as adults. In addition, financial education at an early age can help increase knowledge and confidence about money as well as decrease the likelihood of financial problems later in life!

Teaching children how to manage their money creates a brighter financial future!
