Helping the Next Generation Balance Privilege and Responsibility

with Joline Godfrey, financial education expert and author of Raising Financially Fit Kids

Recorded Thursday, August 19 at 12:00 p.m.

Financial education was once as simple as modeling frugal behavior and teaching kids about compound interest and saving. But now, low-interest rates and credit are available to almost anyone; companies target kids as consumers on children’s programming, and kids can access numerous financial transactions online.

As such, it’s easy for families to lose control of an informal financial education process that had worked for generations. But avoiding opportunities to instill financial fluency in the next generation will leave them unprepared for a lifetime of monetary responsibility. This session gives families, at all levels of wealth, guidance on how to engage the next generation in their own self-development.
