Teach life skills

As a mom, I set out to teach my kids about money. What they learned reached far beyond dollars and cents. My children learned essential life skills like confidence, decision-making and responsibility. This mom learned that it wasn’t about the money at all. 

When our kids graduated from high school they had 13 and 15 years of hands-on practice with their own money–a valuable financial education that didn’t cost us a cent.
