This month, Kimberly Rotter with CreditCardinsider.com asked me, along with several other financial literacy experts, to weigh in on various ways adults can approach money lessons with their kids at different ages. The final piece includes some stats we are all too familiar with:
• Half of the U.S. wealth gap is connected to the vastly different financial knowledge levels of the affluent and the poor.
• Only 4 states currently require students to complete a personal finance course to graduate from high school.
• Just 17 states include personal finance instruction in their curriculum requirements.
But, we know that starting young is the key to helping kids better understand their money options – and to manage them wisely!
