Show Me the Money!

This line from the classic Jerry McGuire movie rings true for most kids - Show me the money! Kids' Money is all about giving kids the opportunity to learn about money and develop the financial skills and habits they will need as adults, by handling their own money as children.

We advocate giving kids an allowance along with the responsibility to purchase and pay for many of the things they need and want while they're growing up.

We also give you the tools you need to make money on your own.

Last, but not least, we give you information on specific areas of money management and how you can conquer the challenges you will face in each area.

All you need to do is choose a Topic and select a Resource and you're on your way. Enjoy the journey!
