Many times parents are hesitant to talk to their kids about certain topics. Money should not be one of them. Two thirds of children look to their parents for advice on managing their money and most of them are not getting anything. Now whether or not your parents talked to you about saving money or paying your bills on time your kids are wanting to hear what you have to say. In an article published by US News and World Reports, they say, “More than 1 and 5 teens don’t know that interest must be paid on borrowed money. Fewer than a third know how to budget their money, and only 36% know how to open a savings account.” This should scare you! Do you know what your kids know or don’t know about money? Starting July 1, 2010 all Ohio schools are required to teach a financial literacy class to incoming freshman (Class of 2014). The Ohio Credit Union League has done an AMAZING job at creating a site where parents and children/teens can go to learn about a ton of different topics, like budgeting and credit. Check out all of the great information they have to offer and maybe, just maybe learn how to talk to your kids about money.
