Money Matters: A Guide to Teaching Finances to Children

Monday, October 22, 2012 at 9:52pm by Site Administrator

In today’s complex financial world, it has never been more important to teach children about responsible money management. According to a recent survey, over 30% of young adults report that they had not learned to live within a budget, the importance of saving or how to use credit cards wisely, before they entered the workforce.

It is imperative that parents and teachers instruct young people on the dos and don’ts of personal finances. Because we at Business Credit Cards understand the importance of being financially aware and financially capable, we’ve produced a guide to help educate younger generations towards a smarter, more financially informed future.


Part I: An Introduction to Teaching Financial Independence

Part II: Government-Sponsored Investment Programs

Part III: Actionable Ways to Teach Children Finances 

Part IV: Understanding Credit & Credit Cards for Young Adults

Part V: Trusted Financial Resources for Parents, Teachers and Young People


We suggest beginning with the introduction, but feel free to jump from section to section – and remember, financial independence can be informative and enjoyable!
