FamZoo is featured on a new episode of the Daytime Emmy nominated public TV series Biz Kid$. The two-and-a-half minute segment shows how "Chief Zoo-Keeper" Chris uses the FamZoo-powered “Bank of Beaufort” to teach his two teens — Taryn and Evan — personal finance skills.
Highlighted concepts include:
- Dividing an allowance to balance between near-term spending, long-term saving, and charitable giving
- Allowing kids to learn through hands-on trial and error
- Paying off a loan for a large purchase — a laptop in this case
- Taking on extra jobs to pay off debts quickly
