Many kids have no idea what it's like to run a household—to budget, pay bills, buy groceries, and so on. Parents often shelter their kids from grown-up realities about money. But in our attempts to protect them from real-world truths, we can fail to teach them about money at all.
As a result, we're raising a whole generation of kids who have no idea how money works and how to handle it wisely. When your kids leave home, they need to know how to handle the financial challenges and temptations they'll face. They should be aware of the hidden dangers behind those credit card offers and that driving a used car isn't such a bad thing. It's our job as parents to get this message through to them. If you teach your children how to handle money when they’re young, they won't end up with money regrets later on in life. You can give them the head start you wish you'd had.
With the Adventure Pack, your kids will learn:
