April is the National Financial Literacy Month in United states. The goal of the month is to teach all citizens financial skills and ensure they have a good relationship with their money.
The Jump$start coalition started promoting the month of April in the year 2000 as Financial Literacy youth Month, but in 2004 the Senate gave the program a big push by recognising April as the National Financial Literacy Month.
In the past couple weeks, you may have noticed various activities celebrating this month all with the goal of ensuring everybody starting with the youth learn how to manage their money. How are you celebrating this month?
In the meantime, here are a couple of sites I’ve found on the web that discuss this topic, but even more crucial include or mention kids in the posts.
- Dave Ramsey – The time has come. Dave, Barrack and George in complete agreements on a national importance issue.
- Yahoo Finance
- Daily News – A perfect time to teach your kids about money
- Hoxton Financial – April is national financial literacy month
- Enemy of Debt – Through the eyes of a 5-year-old.
- Start talking to your kids about money.
- MyJobChart – April is Financial Literacy Month.
- The Family Financial Literacy Pledge.
Question: How do you think we are doing as a nation as far as teaching our kids financial literacy? What more can we do?
