Why should we teach financial education to kids?
Everyone deals with finances and money throughout their lives yet this critical life skill isn’t taught in school. When so much of what we do depends on this skill we NEED to teach it as early as possible. Research indicates children start developing habits as young as five years old. Why not start them off developing good financial habits?
Here are a few financial literacy facts that show why financial education is so important.
- Two in five adults give themselves a C, D, or F on their knowledge of personal finance.
- 56% of adults admit that they do not have a budget
- Over 1/3rd of Americans do not pay their bills on time
- The average adult has over $15,000 in credit card debt
- The average student has over $32,000 in debt
- 2/3rd of Americans are currently living paycheck to paycheck
- Most adults have less than $500 in savings

Not much actually. Really they both mean to understand concepts and skills regarding money and finances.
What’s is the difference between the activity books?
Activity book 1: Make It, Count It, Keep It is more of a basic book that goes over a variety of subjects without going into a lot of depth. It’s a good place to start off. Our Activity Book 2: Making & Using Money focuses on the topics of income and expenses and has a slightly higher skill level.
Do you also teach entrepreneurship?
