Money Lessons for Moms & Dads

"Money as You Grow, developed by the President's Advisory Council on Financial Capability, provides 20 essential, age-appropriate financial lessons—with corresponding activities—that kids need to know as they grow. Written in down-to-earth language for children and their families, Money as You Grow will help equip kids with the knowledge they need to live fiscally fit lives. The lessons in Money as You Grow are based on more than a year of research, drawn from dozens of standards, curricula, and academic studies." - Money as You Grow

Developing financial literacy skills in future generations needs to be a collective educational process led by parents and schools. These 20 researched-based lessons are simple enough for parents to understand and apply. Please promote Money as You Grow with parents from your district so they can share these lessons with their own children. Our district will be promoting these lessons on our website and school newsletter this month.
