Now that the kids are back in school, we may be asking ourselves—yet again—where the summer went. Each year, summer seems to pass by more quickly than the last.
Jill Tipograph, founder and CEO of summer programs and teen/college enrichment coaching firm Everything Summer, advises that parents take a moment with their kids to reflect on the past few months.
What did your kid(s) do over the summer? Did they spend endless hours playing video games or go to the usual day camp, sports camp, specialty camp or teen travel program? You might want to consider a different type of camp—one that provides kids with invaluable money-management skills and purpose. You may decide to build invaluable financial strategies and lessons your kids can utilize to understand the value of money better.
