3/18/2019

Here are seven things you can do to start the conversation about money and finances with your kids.

  • Take your kids with you on your next visit to Landings Credit Union.
  • Let them watch you balance your checkbook.
  • Show your kids how you pay your bills so they know that electricity, water, gas, phones and cable all cost money.
  • Give them a budget for an item they want, and let them choose which one to buy.
  • Let your kids work to pay for an expensive gadget or a special trip they really want.
  • Help them open their own small business.
  • Let your kids see you occasionally leave a store without buying anything so they learn to fight the impulse to buy, buy, buy.
