Information for Parents
You have taught your child the basics of life but have you taught them how to manage their money?
It is never too early to start talking with your children about finances. The way your child handles money will affect their future. We want our children to get a good education, to start saving for the future and to build financial security.
Here are some financial tips for you to help your child:
Share with your child all you know about how to handle money before they leave for university. Our certified counsellors are available to work with you if you need some assistance in this area. Choosing an area of study is one of the most difficult decisions we ever make. Help your child research realistic job opportunities - their locations, salary and advancement possibilities. There are hundreds of scholarships available, including ours, that can help lift some of the financial pressure facing a student.
The stronger the communication with a parent about money, the better prepared they will be when handling their financial decisions in the future.
