Demystifying Family Finances
Abstract: Money is a challenging topic, and many parents may feel that talking about money with their children is taboo. Others may feel that money management is too complex a topic to explain to their children. Whatever their reluctance, parents need to be encouraged in discussing financial concepts with their children and become role models for using money wisely. Join in the conversation as we discuss family financial literacy,the role it plays in moving families forward, and dive into free resources available from the National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) and the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE). These resources include a gaming app to reach learners on the go, classroom books, and a booklet of games to help parents engage their children in the conversation about financial literacy.
