The Piggy Bank & The World Economy

The US economy and the domino effect on the world economy has been in the headlines for quite a while now. How do we bring home this information to our students? Teach them about personal finance and build from there. If we expect to raise and teach our children as citizens of the world. Why not start now. Use the piggy bank as the starting point.

Many banks and credit unions have educational outreach programs designed to talk about finances in the school. The national Junior Achievement program teams with local businesses to do just this sort of thing!

  1. I agree with your suggestion. It is best to start teaching the kids of today at a young age so that they bring it when they grow old. Banks now are children friendly, you can now bring kids in the bank for them to slowly know how it works. You can start your relationship banking as well.
