Teaching Financial Literacy To Tweens: Conclusion

Many financial experts and educators believe that the earlier kids begin learning about money, the better their chances for financial stability in the future. You have a great opportunity to help set up your child for a lifetime of financial responsibility by starting the conversation - get your child interested in and excited to talk about money.
 
Many adults are reluctant to teach their kids about money, because they do not have confidence in the way they’ve handled their own finances. Don’t let this be your excuse for avoiding the topic. It’s not too late to get your own finances in order, set a good example, learn together and help your child become financial literate - ready to take on his or her finances with knowledge, skills and confidence.
