9th May, 6:00 – 7:30PM: Joanna Dingle and Emily Grace, “How to Speak to Kids About Money”
Please join us on Thursday May 9th, 6 to 7:30pm for an Education Evening on navigating how to speak to children about money. Joanna Dingle and Emily Grace will present strategies to foster a responsible awareness of the value of money and how to explain financial matters to children.
“We all agree that the financial education of our children should start early; the sooner we teach children about money, the more effective we’ll be in raising financially successful adults. However, many of us are unsure of how to initiate the conversation,” says Emily.
Emily, Joanna, and fellow parents will gather to share ideas and experiences on this important topic:
When is the right time? How early is too early?
What should you say? How should you say it?
How do you strike the right balance between emotions, transparency, and reality?”
This event is free but registration is required, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Light bites and refreshments will be served.
