Thrifty Tuesdays helps your money go further!
It's never too early for parents or caregivers to learn some easy to implement techniques to teach kids about savings, giving, and spending.
Schools are not able to spend a lot of time on this subject and it's an important skill kids will use for the rest of their lives. Why don't you join us and get the basics to set up a good financial foundation for your child(ren)!
NOTE: This presentation is for parents.
From the presenter
Canadian households have some of the highest levels of debt in the world. The reasons are complicated and diverse however much can be attributed to the fact that people just don’t know how to manage their money.
Most of us weren’t born with money management talent, we weren’t taught by our family, and we didn’t learn in school. However, there’s hope because money management is a skill.
We need to help our children understand the benefits of smart money choices so they can go from financially fit kids to financially successful adults. We want to shed some light on the mystery of money management.
In the Raising Financially Fit Kids workshop, you will learn how to:
- Identify what the consequences of not teaching children about money;
- Recognize what kids are learning from us to create their money history;
- Start the conversation around money values;
- Introduce money management to your children at an appropriate age;
- Use an allowance as a strategy to teach money skills;
- Identify teachable moments in everyday life;
- Help your children to save, spend and give wisely; and
- Teach your children that money is a tool to be used wisely.
The session will give you plenty of opportunity to share your best practices as well as ask questions of other parents and the facilitator.
This interactive and fun workshop is 90 minutes! We take a “grab and go” approach – grab an idea or two and go try it. All participants will walk away with ideas, resources and the full curriculum upon request.
