Financial Literacy for Kids

It's amazing how quickly children learn that ATMs are not a source of income. In fact, instant gratification aside, kids become conservative, even frugal, spenders when they earn their own money and begin to buy things for themselves, like toys and candy. With guidance and encouragement, children decide on priority, price, even quality better than they tie their shoes. First American can help teach your budding financial manager great habits early. With their own money, they can be taught to build a budget, save money in their own savings account, even learn about investing. Proper money management can start them down the path to a successful financial life. It's the gift they'll thank you for later.
