HELP YOUR KIDS GET SMARTER ABOUT MONEY WHILE THEY'RE AT HOME
Kids are eager to learn about money, and parents are looking for reliable and engaging, online sources. Below you’ll find links to many resources where children can learn:
- What is an emergency fund and why is it so important?
- How can people on an average salary become millionaires by the time they retire?
- What is a credit score, and how can it help me - or prevent me - from renting an apartment, buying a car, or even getting a job?
Here are links to games, activities and simple lessons to share with them. Since California does not require financial education in our schools, these weeks at home are a great opportunity for you to help them learn some key life skills. Whether you’re a parent or a teacher who’s staying involved with your students while school is on hiatus, you can encourage them to be better consumers and citizens by understanding money.
These are free from many groups that deliver financial education in classrooms and we have compiled the links in one place for easy access, so they can learn from home. Please share this with other families and educators. We’re all in this together!
