  • My parents were very open about finances, and so are my husband and I. I know that my daughter needs to take a personal finance class as a requirement for high school graduation; I do not know what other schools do.

  • We are trying to teach our ds that the proverbial money tree doesnt grow in the backyard like he seems to want to believe.
    He has one of the SchoolHouse Rock videos and it has a segment on money and finances that is really cute but he just doesnt seem to get it..
