Young adults today are ... getting bad grades, dropping out of school, defaulting on student loans, losing jobs and future job opportunities, getting cards repossessed, maxing out an average of 3.5 credit cards with a balance of $2,748 on each, ruining their credit ratings, and filing bankruptcies at record rates. They're moving back in with parents again and again -- and parents are spending their own retirement funds trying to keep them out of even more financial trouble. Even worse, though, is the psychological impact of debt on today's youth. It can result in depression, substance abuse, even suicide. WE HAVE TO TEACH TEENS ABOUT MONEY ... IT'S NO LONGER AN OPTION. HELP THEM START OUT WITH CONFIDENCE BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T TEACH THEM, WHO WILL?From the Author:
Did you know that ... less than 15% of all high school graduates have ever taken a personal finance class? Did you know that ... the average college undergraduate owes almost $20,000 in student loan debt. Nearly 80% owe $3,000 to $7,000 in credit card debt? Can you imaging being 22 years old and nearly $30,000 in debt -- with no guaranteed job? (Many are even losing job opportunities because they've damaged their credit while in school.) Did you know that ... nearly 7% of U.S. personal bankruptcies are filed by those under age 25? And they can't write off their student loan debt. I travel the country teaching teens and parents how to manage money. It really is as easy as 1-2-3! Learning about money is like anything else we do in life: WE LEARN. I encourage you to teach your children how to manage money before they're out on their own. Be pro-active with them, not re-active. Help them start out with confidence!
