When my husband and I began thinking of having children, we were worried. We had fallen into some common money troubles and were unsure of how to get out of debt. We weren’t even aware of how to use our retirement savings!
Our schools simply did not teach us about money.
We didn’t want to repeat the cycle, but we were unsure of how we begin teaching kids about money. There just wasn’t enough information out there on how to raise money smart kids.
That’s when I set out on a mission. Not only was I going to get out of debt (including mountains of student loans), I would also gain enough knowledge to prepare my own daughter to manage her money correctly. Now, I want to share those money lessons with your family.
Teaching kids about money shouldn’t be painful or even boring! With fun, creative money activities and a dedication to changing your family’s perspective on spending and saving, you can set yourselves and your children on the right path.
This site isn’t for families with a net worth of $1 million or even those in debt. Every Little Cent was created with the hope that the next generation can go into adulthood ready to face the most common questions about spending, saving, borrowing, and investing.
