Financial Literacy For Tweens, Ages 11-13

The tween years bring important financial lessons and likely some challenges too. The foundation of life and money lessons you’ve taught your kids are essential in these next few years. So too are honest and consistent messages that recognize your kids’ views, while maintaining and supporting your core values. The primary thing that kids want at this age is to be viewed as young adults. Promoting greater financial maturity and more independent financial decisions can be a win-win for the whole household.
