Financial Fundamentals for Kids at Home
With the ongoing spread of the coronavirus around the United States and abroad, more than 50 million children have been taken out of schools and classrooms for the foreseeable future. As schools and educators adapt to the challenges and constraints of distance learning, parents and caregivers are finding themselves with an unexpected part-time job: substitute teacher.
Fortunately, there are some important life lessons that you are uniquely qualified to teach. 84% of Gen-Z students currently rely on their parents and family for financial education, as opposed to their schools. While you probably didn’t think you would be adding part-time teacher to your resume anytime soon, you won’t need a degree to build up your kids’ skills to manage money into adulthood while you’re all sheltering at home.
