Here are 3 ways to develop financial skills for homeschool high schoolers.
Financial Skills for Homeschool High Schoolers
Just like anybody, your homeschool high schoolers need to be skilled in financial literacy. If they are well prepared to handle money and financial responsibilities, they won’t be as prone to falling into the errors of the past generations.
Here are 3 ways to develop those necessary financial skills for your homeschool high schoolers:
- Talk about money with your teens. Make financial discussions as great a priority as the discussions you’ve had with them about safe driving and healthy relationships.
- Model healthy financial management. Include them on family budget discussions, shopping, and financial goal setting.
- Provide homeschool high schoolers with an engaging, interactive, Biblical-perspective Financial Literacy curriculum for their high school transcript’s Consumer Math credit.
7Sisters’ Financial Literacy from a Christian Perspective helps you and your homeschooler hit each of those goals.
Designed to be truly interactive, this curriculum includes online assignments and family discussions as well as solid life-preparation skills. (My son found it to be one of his most useful high school courses.)
