H&R Block knows that talking to teenagers, about any subject, can be difficult. Many parents would rather talk to their kids about sex education or drug use prevention than the family finances. Unfortunately, new research from the American Psychological Association finds that worrying about money is a stress factor for thirty percent of children surveyed.
To promote “financial fitness” in teens and combat this stress, H&R Block has developed the Dollars and Sense curriculum for high schools across the country. In addition to the school programs, H&R Block has created the Dollars & Sense website, where parents can find online tips from Dr. Brad Klontz, financial psychologist and co-founder of Your Mental Wealth.
I have a couple of teenagers, and these sites and information provided there have really helped me be able to talk to them about money. These are great resources for anyone with a teenager! These are sites that I have bookmarked and will visit for the next 10 years, probably!
One lucky winner will win a copy of H&R Block at Home Tax Software, just in time for tax filing!
