Money can be one of those awkward subjects parents don’t always like to talk about with their kids. Sometimes we don’t feel equipped to teach our kids about handling money when we could learn a thing or two ourselves! May 7-11, 2012 is Youth Financial Literacy Week and Money Mentors, a non-profit money coaching organization, is hosting some free events in Calgary to help parents and teens learn more about money, debt and money management
Enrich Your Kids
When: May 9, 2012 from 6:30-7:30pm.
Address: #150, 1200 – 59 Ave. S.E., Calgary, AB
Enrich Your Kids creatively breaks down how to show your kids the value of money, how to budget their allowance, the importance of saving, how to afford what they need (or think they need!), the benefits of banking and dangers of debit cards… in a fun and interactive way even your kids will like!
