One of the last taboos is money. We will frequently teach our kids about the birds and the bees before we teach them anything about fiscal responsibility and money management.
If you have teenagers here is a nifty website with some great educational material. Read through the lesson plans and student resource guide for ideas on teaching your teenagers about money management. Spend a little time each week discussing how to manage money properly. After all it is a necessary life skill. Don’t let them learn the hard way. Teach them now how to manage their money so it doesn’t manage them.
