We have so, so, so much to be thankful for in this world. Yet contentment, or “the state of being satisfied; ease […]
Figuring out how to teach kids about money is only half the equation. You need to get clear on what you want to teach your child(ren) about money. I want you to think back. Waaaayyyy back, to before you carried your money hang-ups around with you. When money didn’t feel like a limiting factor. Wasn’t a […]

I’m sharing 5 family activities that don’t involve a screen. I read somewhere that I’m part of the Oregon Trail generation. Anna Garvey puts it beautifully when she says, “[we] came of age just as the very essence of communication was experiencing a seismic shift, and it’s given us a unique perspective that’s half analog […]
Free video games about money for your kid. Kids love getting mail…and you don’t even have to pay S&H! What child doesn’t love to get mail? If you pair that with a FREE money video game…well now you’re just asking for a high-pitch squeal. Through its Practical Money Skills program, Visa is on a mission […]

I'm a Certified Financial Education Instructor, and my Superpower is both handling money + teaching others how to do the same. Still, I'm obligated to tell you that I'm not a financial advisor (you can stalk my About page for more about me), and that this site is for information and entertainment purposes only (thank goodness, right? Your kid doesn't need another snooze-fest educational site). The content herein should not be mistaken for professional financial advice. It's highly recommended that you seek advice from a professional for serious financial matters...(pssst: that was a PSA for the parents because your kid is at the lucky age of life where they're not likely going to get into any of those...specifically if they stick around here!).
