Parent Resources for Financial Literacy
Here are a few terrific resources teachers can use who are interested in working with parents to collectively develop personal financial literacy skills in students.
Parent Guides are a first-time-ever curriculum developed for parents to begin sharing Financial Fitness for Life® with their children at every grade level. The lessons are simple, with exercises parents can guide or explore as a family. Each subject area provides material for family discussion and an assortment of recommended activities that parents can do together with their kids. There are two comprehensive versions: K-5 and 6-12.
I wrote about Money As You Grow in this earlier post, which is 20 lessons for parents built by the President's Advisory Council on Financial Capability.
