The Educational Testing Services reported that “students who do more reading at home are better readers and have higher math scores.” What a great motivation to read with your kids! Here are some resources for you to use at home, with a financial education piece. Please feel free to suggest some of your favorite books to us as well and check back for more titles.
Our top pick for teens is The Big Book of Adulting Life Skills for Teens by Emily Carter.
Our top pick for parents is Money Doesn't Grow on Trees: A Parent's Guide to Raising Financial Responsible Children by Neale S. Godfrey.
The next step for our members ages 13-15 is the SOAR EXPLORERS program. We are pleased to offer free classes designed to help our younger members make smart financial choices. Members who complete all listed classes and score at least 80% on their post test will receive a $25 reward, deposited to their Share Savings account!
