Raising Money Savvy Kid$
Equipping Parents to Financially Empower their Children for the Future.
About Raising Money Savvy Kids
If you're like many parents today, you might be wondering how and when to teach your children about healthy money management skills? They aren't learning how to organize money in school and they aren't learning it elsewhere, so how will they learn?
You may also want to save money for them yourself, and to help them with their future goals. The RESP is only for education. What if they want to travel, do charity work overseas, start their own business, or buy a house? How do you save for that? Plus, is the RESP the best option to save for their education anyway?
At Raising Money Savvy Kids our goal is to equip parents to financially empower their children for the future. Learn the principles of financial stewardship, the common approaches to teaching kids about money that don't actually work, and the keys to raising financially savvy kids. Also, become familiar with the different ways you as a parent can save for your children's future and help them reach their goals - no matter what their goals are.
You will also be introduced to the CashKidz Program - a hands-on resource kit that gives your family an interactive program to increase the financial literacy of your children. CashKidz will teach your children to budget and become financially savvy in the areas of saving, giving, and 3 categories of spending.
Raising Money Savvy Kids is good for parents with children ages 0 - 14.
For this workshop will we be accepting non-perishable food items for Winnipeg Harvest in place of a registration fee.
The CashKidz Wealth Kit will be made available for purchase at this workshop. Information on the Wealth Kit can be found below.
