It’s never too early to start teaching your child or teen good financial habits. That’s why FORUM celebrates National Credit Union Youth Month™ in April. This is the perfect opportunity to focus on the financial needs of young people and teach them the benefits of saving money and setting financial goals. FORUM is committed to helping kids become financially aware and instilling strong financial habits.
If your son or daughter is heading to college this fall, both you and your child most likely have a lot on your mind – finances, meeting new people, choosing a major, and more. With all of these conversations happening, it’s a great time to talk with your child about the basics of budgeting, establishing credit, and opening a free checking account.
What better way to give your teen a bright start than encouraging early entrepreneurial skills! FORUM understands the importance of the entrepreneurial spirit and the impact it can have on a person’s life. That’s why we created the Bright Start program. It is designed to promote entrepreneurial skills for teens across Central Indiana. Here’s a peak at the program!
Teaching kids about money may not come naturally to most. But like any skill in life, giving your kids hands on experience when they are young will pay dividends later (pun intended). Below you’ll find four simple ways to teach good money habits.
