As you prepare for life with your new child, it’s time to prepare a new financial plan for your family or make any necessary changes to your existing plan. You’ll want to consider how your baby will affect your budget, make sure you have adequate insurance, protect your child’s future with a well-thought-out estate plan, and determine how having a child will affect your income taxes.
Financial education is important, and it’s never too early to start. At SESLOC, we make learning fun with activities to help your kids learn the value of money and the importance of growing their savings. Help them develop habits now for a lifetime of financial wellness.
When should you start teaching your kids about money? Early — because the skills and habits they learn now can have a tremendous impact down the road.
