Financial Literacy

The Simple Dollar is a financial literacy website that for the past few years has served as a trusted resource for families and major publications such as Forbes, Business Insider, and The Wall Street Journal. We recently published a Guide to Securing Your Child’s Credit Future and are hearing that many parents have found it valuable. 

Recent studies paint a grim picture of Americans’ money management education and habits. In the first large-scale international study of 15-year-old students’ financial literacy skills, the U.S. ranked at best 8th and at worst 12th out of 18 countries participating. In an effort to be a part of the solution, we have created this guide to help parents understand how to promote positive credit awareness and responsible financial habits throughout a child’s development.

You can see the entire guide along with some of its features here.
