Let's Teach Our Kids About Finances

From a young age, kids learn that money means something, but what about finances?

Often times when children receive money, they walk through the toy aisle with the thrill of knowing something there can be theirs! And all thanks to that money that they have. But finances are so much more than just receiving money and rushing off to purchase something. Money has value. Money has purpose. And teaching our kids that from a young age is extremely important.
