Raising Money-Savvy Children
Model Good Money Skills
Between online banking, debit and credit cards, children don't often see their parents writing checks, mailing bills or saving money in a jar for a vacation or big-ticket items, Chick says. Parents need to bring back some visual aids, such as spare change jars, to help their children see them saving money, Chick says. Also, he says parents should be aware of how they talk about money and refrain from fighting about money issues in front of their children.
