Learning the basics of money starts at a young age. In fact, kids as young as age two can begin learning money concepts, specifically about shapes, sizes, and colors. As children grow, parents can start introducing more complex financial concepts, including teaching them the difference between a need and a want, how to pay for goods, and how to count cash and make change.
We offer a variety of resources for kids of all ages. For younger children, check out the list of blogs below.
If you have older children or teens, check out these resources.
