New kids and money resource

It’s never too early to start teaching kids about money. In an effort to promote financial literacy among youth, MMI launched a new Youth and Money website section.

The Youth and Money section offers tools and articles on pressing financial issues facing parents with children of all ages, such as buying a car, saving for college, and the cost of raising a child for new parents. Parents will also find tips and tools for giving kids an allowance.

Raising financially smart kids also requires wise budgeting and planning from parents. The Youth and Money section offers tips and ideas to help parents budget for back to school shopping and cheap vacation ideas for the family.

Think adults have all the answers? Think again! Check out the money advice from kids to grown-ups video. These kids are wise beyond their years and adults will enjoy hearing some the advice from these young money managers.

The new Youth and Money section also offers:

  • The Teaching Children About Money webinar
  • Lesson plans for parents and teachers
  • Budgeting calculators
  • Links to other financial education websites
