As a parent, you want your child to grow up to become a financially savvy adult who knows how to be responsible with his or her money. Learning how to manage money is a critical life skill, and so it’s never too early to start teaching your child about finances.
However, managing finances as an adult can be daunting, and introducing kids to financial management may seem even harder or more intimidating. Our Gerber Life “Age-by-Age Guide” is designed to help parents turn daily activities into opportunities for teaching kids about money. Ages shown are approximations, since each child develops and learns at different rates.
