The teen years are often the first time your kids will start to earn or manage their own money, either through a part time job or an allowance. It’s important to establish good financial habits now as it can pay huge dividends in the future. Teaching your children to be smart about money will not only benefit them in the long run but you as well. While it’s important to talk to your children about their finances, it may often be difficult to find a place to start.

Happy Holidays!

May the magic and wonder of the holiday season stay with you through the coming year!

Warmest greetings and best wishes!!!
