Children are going to handle their money the way you handle your money. The most important thing you can do, Dave Ramsey, America's trusted voice on money, says is to make wise decisions yourself and show your children what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Ramsey says to always remember that children are watching you. He cites a Native American saying: “Tell me, and I’ll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I’ll understand.”
So, if you're giving your child an allowance, now's the time to also teach 'em how to handle their money. The McKnight Advisory Group is partnering with Holloway Accounting and American Century Investments for an interactive seminar, Raising Financially Savvy Kids, on Thursday, Aug. 22 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. Get the tools you need to help kids be money pros as you learn all the tips and techniques you need to teach them about earning, spending, saving, investing, borrowing, giving back and more.
It all takes place at Stones River Country Club's Grand Ballroom (1830 NW Broad St., Murfreesboro). Space is limited and registration is open. RSVP at events.r20.constantcontact.com.
