Teaching Your Children at Home

Navigating the new normal as a parent during the COVID-19 pandemic may mean teaching your children at home for the first time. While it can be challenging to take on this new role of teacher and juggle your own work and commitments, it’s becoming part of daily life for many parents who have never taught their children at home.

It's never too early to start teaching your children the basics of money management. Exposure to financial education at an early age can lay the foundation for a more successful financial future. While you’re staying at home, consider these fun, age-appropriate activities to help your kids become well versed in money management for elementary school, middle school and high school students. Teaching children about money through "edutainment" or "gamification" is effective in making what can seem a dull subject more exciting. By utilizing compelling and familiar mediums — video games, comics and apps — Practical Money Skills enables children to learn while having fun.

"The Practical Money Skills for Life site is a perfect resource for enhancing and supporting the Personal Financial curriculum at our school."
