Financial Literacy Awareness
What is Financial Literacy and why should we educate ourselves and children on Financial Literacy?
Well, financial literacy is not just money management, but it is the skills and habits develop by oneself to make better decisions, analyzing and controlling behaviors.
Building habits start at a young age, this is why it is critical to expose our youth so they can start building these habits. Surveys conducted have found that families do not conversate about money in the home yet talk about managing it. A child's first exposure and understanding of how to manage money is at home, this is where the habits are being formed. Getting your child/children involve in a financial literacy program at an early age can help them to build good habits, make better decisions, better manage their finances which can lead to wealthy life style.
Surveys conducted among different ethnic backgrounds, have shown that minorities are least educated on financial literacy, spends the most money, saves and invest the least amount of money, has no retirement savings. Over time, if minorities continue to not seek or lack in education on financial literacy the wealth gap will widen. Though the population within this group will increase, their wealth will not increase.
Don't wait to give your child the opportunity of building habits and the foundation of a good secure financial life.
