‘Raising Money $mart Kids’ is topic of workshop Monday

“Raising Money $mart Kids” will be the topic of a free one-hour workshop for adults Monday at 4:30 p.m. at Hamilton County Extension in Webster City. No matter how old your children or grandchildren are, organizers say it is never too early or too late to teach skills they’ll need in order to make wise financial choices as adults.

Topics will include: skills and strategies for children of different ages, the power of example, maximizing the value of allowances, and resources for more information. The workshop will be led by Barb Wollan, Family Finance Specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.

This is the first in a series of financial education events to be held locally in honor of Money Smart Week, April 5 to 12. Go to www.moneysmartweek.org or contact 832-9597 for more information.
