Teaching Kids to Save and InvestDo you remember how you handled money growing up? I can’t recall when I got my allowance, but I remember being in second or third grade going around the neighborhood collecting bottles and cans to recycle and earn some extra money. And as grateful as I am for learning what I did, from how I mismanaged money later on and got into debt in college, I can see there were some gaps in my financial knowledge. My husband and I both want our girls to know the value of a hard-earned dollar and how to use it wisely. That won’t happen by accident. It’s going to take a plan. If you two want to help your little ones, make sure you save this episode. Bill Dwight, creator of the amazing family banking app famZoo is here today on the show. Besides being a tech whiz, he’s a father of five who’s had plenty of experience with the ups and downs of raising kids to become adults. In this episode we get into:
- When to start introducing finances
- Getting your kids comfortable with saving and investing
- Why your kids need to get a loan from you

FinTech, Teens, and Money
We’re wrapping up our special FINCON week. It’s been a fantastic in San Diego – so many wonderful sites and companies that are working hard to help couples, families, everyone to master their money.
To celebrate, I’v taken a break from the usual schedule and I have interviews with some of the biggest and best names in personal finance.
Today I want to share my last chat.
Paul Vasey is the founder of Cash Crunch Games. He’s created a way to teach finances to teens through a game. When I found out, I decided to give it a go.
Loved it and his mission to help kids get a foundation with finances and feel comfortable with money. An added bonus? It’s a free game.
If you are a parent, teacher, or maybe looking for kid friendly gifts, please listen. I think you’ll enjoy this!
