Last week I had the honor of teaching a Teens and Money class at Norwalk Community College – 5 afternoons of teens in grades 9 to 12.
We discussed money management, credit, credit cards, banking, car buying, paying for college, budgeting and more. Teaching teens is a passion of mine. This is something they don’t seem to be getting elsewhere.
Here are two of the teen comments:
- I definitely learned a lot about money and how to pay for college and a car.
- I liked the hands on simulations, like the dilemma packets we were given free range with, so that we could play with the elements of rela life situations in a safe setting.
Make sure to talk with your children about money and finances, so they can make educated choices based on knowledge that are right for them, making them look at their choices both the pros and cons.
If you are in the area, I will be teaching a shorten version of this class on Saturday, October 20 at NCC. To register, call NCC at 203-857-7237.
