Richardson GMP
APRIL 2017

Would you like your child to be comfortable with financial matters? For them to pick up healthy spending and saving habits early on that will be useful for their whole life? Of course! But how do you start to address these questions with them? How do you instill these habits in them?

The website “Talk with our kids about money” offers a number of ideas and resources. To add an enjoyable and fun touch, a variety of activities are presented on the site. It’s free and very well made.

The program is offered all year long and will wrap up next April 19th with a special celebration on “Talk with our kids about money” day. To check out the site, click here.

Until next time!
