Teach your teens financial literacy

Tuesday, April 13, 2021 by Tai Moses

As the father of three teens, Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar knows that “it’s never too early for young people to learn good financial habits.” That’s why Hegar is partnering with members of the Texas Legislature “to help give young Texans the knowledge and skills they need to make better-informed personal financial decisions in saving, spending, borrowing and planning.” Hegar points out that the past year has “highlighted the need to promote financial literacy at an early age. As the school year winds down, we’re reminded that the goal of education is to prepare students to meet life’s challenges. It’s never been more important to equip them with the tools they will need to sustain lifelong financial health. That goal is more achievable if we take small steps early on to promote basic financial literacy.” The effort coincides with Financial Literacy Month, which features a number of initiatives “to help consumers learn more about managing their finances to benefit their lives.”
