Born Spenders

Probably not. But it sure does seem like it sometimes. How did kids get so good at Spending? I'd say they're just fast learners.

And, of course, they've had lots of help. Kids are flooded with advertising messages and advertisements encouraging them to spend, spend, spend.

What's a parent to do?

  • How about taking the bull by the horns and teaching your kids how to Spend money responsibly?
  • How about teaching them to develop a Spending Plan or budget?
  • How about encouraging them to track their Spending and see where and how fast their money really goes?
Parents have the power. You have the money! Your kids will listen to you and, with the right program, you can help them develop responsible Spending habits that will serve them well for the rest of their lives.

Kids' Money, thousands of other parents, journalists, experts and websites are here to help.

Take a minute to check out our Spending resources for Parents.

Send your kids to the Kids area for some hands-on learning.

We welcome you to Kids' Money!

Enjoy the adventure of teaching your kids about money!
