Target Audience: Adults Raising Children 4 years old and up
Teaching children about money management can be intimidating to parents these days. Often parents do not know where to start and put off addressing the issue. Or, it may already be a “hot” topic that causes stress and parents avoid it. In reality, teaching children about money management should be just as important as teaching them to read, write, or cross the street safely. After all, it is a concept that they will need for life.
The One a Penny, Two a Penny, Hot Cross Bucks workshop guides parents raising children four years old and up in teaching their children about money management as yet another critically important life skill they need to develop. This workshop provides interested parents with ideas, techniques, and strategies to teach money management while instilling family values. Adults explore personal fi nance articles related to children, discuss basic values and concerns of today, and create a plan to use with their children. The workshop equips parents to guide their children in earning, spending, saving and donating money. By tying these skills to their family values, children will build money management skills along with good character.
