"I wish I had this as a kid!"
- most common comment from parents
No one is born making smart financial decisions.
Classes on financial literacy prepare you for money in the real world.
Money has an enormous impact on our lives. Yet learning about it is largely missing from our education system. Most of what we learn is from trial, and let's be honest, error.
What kids don't learn about money will significantly affect their opportunities, and levels of health and happiness.
Imagine making money mistakes that cost you thousands, anchor you with debt, leave you stressed and fearful, and take away your ability to make choices, pursue opportunities, and reach potential.
The odds are against your kids. Look at the stats!
The facts are:
63% of millennials are financially dependent on their parents.
80% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck.
Millennials are making 20% less than their parents.
70% of students are stressed out about their finances.
HOW PARENTS FEEL:
"I don't want them to need to move back in after college!"
"I am afraid that my kids
don't understand the
profound impact money
decisions have on their lives."
"I want my children to be content in their career, & to support a family without having
too many burdens."
"I want my kid to know the reality of debt, so he doesn't have to feel the pain of it."
