We know parents, grandparents, and other adults are eager to build a good financial literacy foundation for the young people in their lives, but they might not feel that they have enough time, tools, and confidence. Fortunately, many of the building blocks for financial well-being – like patience, planning, and problem-solving – don't require a lot of financial know-how. The Money As You Grow book club was created by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and is a family financial education program that uses children’s books to help families learn key money concepts through reading, play, and quiet one-on-one talks. To find more information about building your child's money skills while you read, please visit: www.consumerfinance.gov/consumer-tools/money-as-you-grow. At this website you will find information for getting started, building your child's money skills, talking about choices, as well as a list of free and downloadable Parent Reading Guides to accompany many popular children's books. These reading guides are also available to pick up at the OSU Extension office in Warren County. Please call ahead of time (513-695-1311), so we have time to get the guides ready for you.
