It’s that time of year again when you start thinking about what your kids really need to be learning outside of school (aside from everything?) as well as what they’d like to be experiencing during their summer break.

One of my own personal beliefs is that when you give kids a three month break, they actually lose learning momentum and it takes weeks just to get them back up to speed again…especially since what they ARE learning isn’t relevant to their lives at all and so much of what they are learning won’t actually help them in life anyway. But that’s a completely different conversation that we don’t want to get into right now.

The Need for a Financial Education Foundation

I don’t have to convince you that it’s critical that our kids learn about money and investing while they are younger. Virtually every adult I talk to comments that they wish they’d been able to attend a ‘money camp’ when they were young. Many of our parents literally ask if we have a program for them.

My response to the parents? Come Join Us!!! As a matter of fact, parents are actually required to attend the last hour of each day this summer and we are very excited about this. We’re gearing up to offering one day Family Money Game Days so stay tuned!

Back to this summer…

Here in Santa Barbara, you have two options, depending on your child’s age.
