- Money behaviors observed and learned in childhood impact adult behaviors.
- Money management messages that children process in the home, the community, on television, and via other media shape their values, attitudes and future money habits.
- Individuals and families are not able to respond to economic disruptions because they have not learned critical money management concepts and skills.
Along with learning basic financial concepts, students learn and practice important life skills to foster self-sufficiency such as communication, decision-making, problem-solving, managing resources, planning, and organizing.
