A Year-by-Year Guide to Teaching Kids About Money

  • Desi

    Ummmm I think a huge lesson for tweens would be to not waste money on stupid things like cigarettes, unlike the kids in those pics??

    • One of the most important things tweens and teens can learn about money is prioritizing their purchases. Unfortunately, the only way they learn it is to make mistakes. It’s really important not to bail them out when they spend their money on lattes and then don’t have enough to put gas in the car. Better they take the bus now than losing the car because they didn’t make a payment when they are 25.
