Nashville, AR - Chances are your household budget is taking a hit now that school
has started. Locker fees, club fees, new school clothes, school supplies, the list
can go on and on. The thought, “my children think I am made of money” or “my children
think money grows on trees” has probably crossed your mind the last few days. How
can parents teach their children about financial management? Teaching practical money
skills can sometimes be a challenge for parents. Here are some things you can do.
Let’s face it. Times are tough for everyone. Necessary items such as groceries and
fuel to operate vehicles cost more now than ever before. By teaching children at an
early age how to manage finances, they will be better prepared to face these challenges
when they become an adult.
For more information about financial matters, contact the University of Arkansas Division
of Agriculture in Howard County by visiting our office located on the second floor
of the courthouse or by calling our office at 870-845-7517. You might also want to
