Teach Children to Save

ABA Foundation’s Teach Children to Save is a national, banker-driven financial knowledge campaign for kids in grades K-8.
 
It’s not just a nice idea to teach kids how to handle money and credit — it’s essential! Teen spending in the United States — products bought by and for teens — totaled $208.7 billion in 2011, according to research published in September 2012. Clearly they know how to spend. What we need to teach them is how to save, invest and live on a budget.
