Debbie and Phyllis have designed a puppet theater with the mission of teaching kids about financial literacy and how to be money smart. They identify many of the reasons why kids need to learn money stills young – before the age of 7 even. So, as parents we want to introduce those money skills even before school, or in addition to school. It's important that the lessons we teach about money go beyond identifying coins and knowing the value of money – we need to be teaching the emotional, psychological, and planning aspects of money management.
They have 92 puppets who help them teach various aspects of financial literacy. Their shows not only teach the skills they need to know – they also show the kids examples of what happens if things go wrong. During the puppet shows, the kids are learning, as are the parents!
If we don't have strong money skills then we're setting ourselves up to always overextend ourselves without thinking about the consequences. 43-50% of American families have less than $500 in savings – which is scary and not the way we're supposed to live. Money problems can impact many other areas of our lives: relationships with your spouse, kids, clients… your sleep…your health… etc.
