Got an 11-13 year old and want them to become money whip-smart? Wondering what that even looks like for their age (according to the President's Advisory Council)?

Check out my latest post in the series "Money Stories to Read Your Kid" to find the answers for how to teach kids about money.

For the last several weeks I’ve checked out no less than 30 different stories about money for kids from our local library, all based on recommendations from parents. For awhile, our home was filled with stacks of colorful, hardback books! Note: Yes, I read every. single. …

My home was just missed by the Memorial Day floods in Houston.

Ever wonder what kinds of stories you can read your pre-tween child about money (or they can read themselves) to start the learning? Curious as to what the President and his advisory council thinks your pre-tween should already know about money to live a "financially smart" life?

Check out my latest post, and the second in the series, Money Stories to Read Your Kid: Pre-Tween. This is a great start for you if you don't quite know how to teach kids about money and are wondering what the heck financial literacy for kids looks like (at specific ages).
