Before they leave the house, how can you prepare your teen to be money savvy? Today we go over the five essential skills they need to know!

Teaching Your Teen About Money and the Real World

Last week, Kristia shared how she’s helping her girls become more savvy and thoughtful with money.

We also go into how to start the conversations so your kid can begin to pick up crucial money habits and learn how to spend, save, and give wisely. 

Because even though money is not the most important thing, understanding how it works can empower your kid to use it as a tool to build a life that they love. 

But to help them prepare takes time. Which can be a challenge in itself. 

Many of us are living full lives. I mean in our case, this week the new school year has started – virtually for us- and now both of our girls are enrolled. 

They have their school schedules, we have our work schedules, and so these next few weeks we’re going to have to test things out and find that rhythm.

And if you have teens in the house, you may feel like time is even further compressed. How do you pass on these lessons while handling your own regular routine and whatever add layers of complexity 2020 has thrown at you?

So today we want to reduce some stress for you. 

We’re going to be looking at how you can help your teen prepare for the real-world, specifically finances. 

In this episode, we’ll go over:

  • Five key money skills they need to know
  • Creating their post-graduation budget
  • Whether or not they should pay bills while living at home

It’s a lot to cover, but I’m excited. Are you ready? Let’s get started!
