More Ways To Prepare Your Youngster For Their Financial Future
In the spirit of consumer education and empowerment, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has released a new program to help you educate and prepare your young ones to head into a secure financial future. The CFPB released a new report in September, called "Building Blocks to Help Youth Achieve Financial Capability" that focuses on the best practices to teach the young and up and coming adults the best habits and learning examples that will help support their financial development well into their future. The CFPB’s new research confirms the importance of starting financial education early and continuing to build on that foundation throughout the K-12 school years, and of financial education for high schoolers.
The bureau advises the 3 main building blocks are: 1) executive function, 2) financial habits and norms, and 3) financial knowledge and decision-making skills. Each of the blocks include critical attributes and abilities, which begin to develop in early childhood and continue throughout the teenage years and adolescence. In the graphic below, the building blocks to build financial capability, what they support in adulthood, and examples of how they apply to financial decisions that many adults face.
