(BPT) - With the start of a new school year underway, your teens are already learning new skills. While most of this learning happens in the classroom, there are plenty of opportunities at home to learn other life skills, especially around financial responsibility.
If you haven't had money conversations with your teen, the fall semester is a great time to start. Your student will have plenty of expenses for school, extracurricular activities and their own wants and needs that they'll need to learn how to fund. These additional expenses can be a great entry point into a conversation around how to help them navigate while they cultivate their own financial skills.
