The Weingart East Los Angeles YMCA (WELA Y) is focused on setting kids up for success at an early age. This summer the WELA Y has incorporated Sammy Rabbit’s Dream Big financial education and goal setting program into its schedules for 5 to 12 years olds. As the videos below demonstrate, the kids are learning and liking the lessons. What many parents may not realize are two things:
1. More and more research indicates adult money habits are formed early, perhaps as early as age seven.
2. Schools offer little, if any instruction on money.
