Financial Peace Jr., illustrates that it’s never too early to teach your kids about money. Created for kids ages 3-12, this board game by Dave Ramsey gives parents the tools they need to teach kids about working, spending, saving and giving.
At Billshark, we too are committed to educating kids about money through our One BILL, One CHILD program. We believe that financial literacy is a critical skill that will ultimately help individuals successfully navigate the world of personal finance. Therefore, we have teamed up with Ramsey Solutions to offer its Foundations in Personal Finance curriculum to middle school students. With every bill a customer submits to Billshark, we pay for one child to receive one hour of instruction in the fundamentals of personal finance. Our goal is to empower a future generation of money-smart kids who will be even more financially savvy adults.
