Sayville, NY, July 03, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Money management is an important skill to learn at any age, and this book, published by Dog Ear Publishing, presents 21 financial ideas in a concise, easy-to-read format for those who want to improve their financial skills and future finances. Preteens, teenagers and young adults who read this straightforward, age-appropriate resource will find a wealth of information to apply to their financial lives. Discussion questions at the end of the book offer ways to think about behaviors that may affect future financial decisions.
Children of all ages will find real-life lessons on such important topics as charging only what they can afford, paying bills on time, reading the fine print, being smart about advertising influences, budgeting, resisting peer pressure, the importance of saving now, comparison shopping, what to do if a credit card is stolen, and how to read credit reports and check registers. Students who take these lessons to heart will be better able to navigate the often tricky waters of money management, giving themselves a head start on future financial security.
In What Every Preteen, Teenager and Young Adult Needs To Know To Avoid Credit Card Debt, retired teachers Deanna Schwartzman and Deanna Suckow present lessons reflecting their more than 50 years in the classroom with both regular and special education students. Their grandchildren provided the motivation for them to begin researching this project, as well as the companion book Teaching Children Money Matters, a resource guide for parents, grandparents, teachers and students. They have also made an inexpensive, interactive workbook, Money Management Manifesto, to use in conjunction with What Every Preteen, Teenager and Young Adult Needs to Know to Avoid Credit Card Debt. This workbook is only available on their Web site, www.teachingmoneymatter.com.
