Could the timing be any better? On the heels of our Preschool Money Manager Kit giveaway, Kristen at the Parent Bloggers Network tells me that they are doing a “Blog Blast” on the topic of teaching kids financial skills. The prize: an iPhone for three randomly-chosen participants. From the PBN website:
This week, we’re working with Capital One to get the word out about managing family finances. Along with national consumer advocacy group Consumer Action, they’ve launched a new online interactive Moneywi$e eLearning tool to help families learn about money management skills, including talking to kids about money. If you haven’t yet figured out how to handle this topic with your kids, this tool is a great place to start!
Here’s how to participate:
Write a post on your blog about how and when to teach kids about money. Post anytime this weekend – Today, September 12 to Sunday, September 14 and include links to /www.capitalone.com/financialeducation/cbt/launcher.htmand /blog.parentbloggers.com.
Make sure to send your blog post link to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll round them up right here – so give your post a creative title!
Be sure to read the PBN announcement for all the details.
