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 parents with ideas, techniques, and strategies to teach money management while instilling family values. Adults explore written resources related to personal finance and 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.
Guiding Questions Include:
The workshop facilitator, Jennifer Guenther, weaves in family-friendly strategies as well as guides participants through exploring concepts and discussing ideas with one another.
Various written resources will be reviewed including Smart Money Smart Kids by Dave Ramsey and Rachel Cruze and The Opposite of Spoiled: Raising Kids Who Are Grounded, Generous, and Smart with Money by Ron Lieber.
