The infographic above applies to the US and I found it in a program I’ve used previously. You see, I happen to teach a class that focuses on Financial Literacy (at least the way I teach it) yet unfortunately this is slated to be the last year it’s offered in its current incarnation.
So where do parents, teens and teachers who want to try to cram valuable instruction into an already crammed curriculum go to get the basic education in handling money that’s missing from most school districts?
One source is H&R Block. Their Dollars and Sense program has valuable resources for all three groups to guide teen acquisition of money management skills.
Local banks and universities are another great source for providing your teen with a financial education due to the obvious absence in many public schools.
What resources are you using to teach your teen about money and contribute to their lifelong financial wellness?
