Preparing kids for the real financial world

Seventy of incoming college freshman told Daily Finance that they have never been taught basic financial literacy skills yet they are signing up for student loans, opening credit cards and making decisions that will have a serious impact on the rest of their lives.

What can you do to help your child prepare for the real financial world? A great way to start might be introducing them to our many resources for youth or perusing the collection at our branches. However it's done,  many agree that we can resolve to get better about teaching financial literacy and give young adults the tools they need to take control of their money.
