Welcome to Raising Money$mart Kids!

What do YOUR kids know about the value of a buck? If you're like most families, finances aren't often discussed. Some parents feel that talking about money makes their kids feel like they're poor. Others may not know where or when to start to help their kids learn about budgeting or business or banking.

Here at Raising Money$mart Kids, you will find articles on everything from setting up an allowance to running a lemonade stand to helping kids make better purchase decisions. You can ask questions get help from the community.

So, grab a cup of coffee and pull up a chair!

Raising Financially Savvy Kids

Think back to your school days. What subjects did you learn in the classroom? You learned reading, writing and math for sure, then you learned history, geography and science as you progressed through the grades. Perhaps you learned even art and music. All of these subjects are important and certainly useful to you at some point in your life. (Even though you probably swore up and down when you were 11 that you would never have any practical use for algebra!) 

The one subject that is not usually taught in the school system is the one that will have a huge impact on your life each and every day: money. How to earn it, spend it, invest it, and pass it on to the next generation.
