Money-Wise Kids

Thank you to IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union for working with us to launch Money-Wise Kids! Talking with your little about financial matters is important and easy to do.  In order for a young person to be successful as an adult, they must have a solid understanding of money and it's connection to education, careers, families, business and their self-sufficiency. 

Our partners at IH Mississippi Valley Credit Union have created a wonderful resource for you to talk about financial issues with your little in a fun and informative way.  As you are out on your activities with your little, think about raising one of the topics below during a conversation.  Talk about how you purchased your car, or how you paid for college.  Discuss with your little how your family handles financial matters, who is involved, how do you come to decisions on small and large financial matters that affect your family.  This type of open discussion, coupled with the activities below can be powerful guides for a young adult to understand finance and money. 

Below are links to the activities connected to this series. Please feel free to print the guides off as needed for your use.
