Do your children have good savings habits? Do they know the difference between wants and needs? Can they view advertising critically? These are just some of the questions to be discussed during an upcoming seminar entitled, “Raising Financially Responsible Children.”
Presented by New York Life Insurance Company agents Judy Eckert and Christopher Pia, this hour-long program was created as a way to help parents teach their children about the value and responsible use of money.
“Most people are uncomfortable speaking about
money,” said Judy Eckert “It’s just not something we like to share – even with our children. As a result, many of them are growing up without the basic skills needed to survive in today’s consumer-driven society.”
To combat this problem, New York Life enlisted the help of noted financial educator and best selling author, Neale S.
Godfrey. Ms. Godfrey, who has appeared on “Oprah,” “Good Morning America,” and “The Today Show,” is the author of 14 books, including the #1 best-seller; Money Doesn’t Grow On Trees: A Parent’s Guide To Raising Financially Responsible Children.
“Neale is the nation’s leading expert when it comes to teaching financial skills to children,” said Judy Eckert. “That’s why we asked her to develop this program and share with us some of the age-appropriate activities she has developed to help parents engage their children and teach them how to make good financial decisions.”
“Raising Financially Responsible Children” will be held at Sterling House Community Center on March 1 at 7 PM. Refreshments will be served, and all attendees will receive a complimentary workbook to take home after the event. There is no cost to attend, however seating is limited. To reserve your seats or request additional information, please call Judy at 203-385-5159.
