Who should teach kids about personal finance? Is it a skill that starts in the home, or should schools put more emphasis on money matters?
Everyone knows how important it is for parents to support what their children are learning in school. This means sitting with them to do homework and making sure they are keeping their grades up. But what about financial literacy? Who is responsible for teaching kids about money matters?
Some people are naturally good with their money. They spend less than they make, and they’re able to put money away without the temptation to spend it – but not me. I’ve always been bad with my money; it controlled my life for years. The day my life changed was when I couldn’t even afford to take the bus to work. I realized that my debt was holding me back from the life I wanted for myself.
