The informative tutorial, titled “Financial Literacy for Kids and their Families”, is designed to provide children “the basic skills needed to help families lay the foundation for a healthy financial future”, said Berman. “It also provides kids with basic money management skills they will need as they approach young adulthood.” Parents and grandparents are encouraged to join their kids for the discussions.
The program is made possible through a partnership of the Receiver of Taxes and Henry Montag of Financial Forums, Inc., a provider of educational workshops and conferences for professional and consumer organizations.
Topics of discussion will include: Money and Values within Your Family, Living within Your Means, Understanding the Importance of Good Credit, Basic Saving and Investment Strategies, Student Loan Borrowing Strategies and Pitfalls, as well as various other money management topics.
This seminar is purely informational. There will be no cost associated with it, nor will there be any products pitched or sold. It is strictly an opportunity for parents and their children to come together to educate themselves on the crucial topic of financial literacy.
