This final week in April marks the end of National Financial Literacy Month. The objective of the month (ironically) supported by Congress is to "highlight the importance of financial literacy and teach Americans how to establish and maintain healthy financial habits". Hear, hear! (Um, "Americans" includes our federal, state and local governments, right?)
To commemorate National Financial Literacy Month, I spoke in a teleseries today hosted by Sarah Cook over at RaisingCeoKids.com. Each of the speakers shared their 6 top tips for raising "cash savvy" kids. Here are mine:
- Practice, practice, practice!
- Have a system
- Do the math
- Create balance
- Insist on accountability
- Promote passions
