  • Paying for College
    by Cole Ehmke, Person Finance Specialist, UW Agricultural and Applied Economics Department
    The sticker shock of sending children to college is getting bigger, and families are increasingly asking themselves how they are going to pay for college. This session will look at the pros and cons of helping put kids through college – the tools and strategies to employ years in advance as well as while a student is in college.

  • Setting Goals for the Future: Working with Teens
    by Bill Taylor, UW Northeast Area Community Development Extension Educator
    Developing a spending plan or budget is important, but not the first step in financial planning. Before attempting to establish a budget, we must know where we are going financially, what the cost is, and how soon funds will be required to meet our needs. Without a well thought-out set of financial goals, we won’t know where we are headed or when we have arrived. Do we need money for a car? A college education? A prom dress or the latest computer game? Whatever the case, goals give our financial planning and spending structure and purpose. Our mind works to fulfill the mental pictures we have of ourselves, and written and reviewed goals shape that picture such that we consciously and unconsciously can move toward their completion.

  • Talking about Money and Kids
    by Mary Martin, UW West Area Community Development Extension Educator
    Parents are inundated with requests from their children and experience firsthand the impacts of marketing strategies on their children. The average American child watches an estimate between 25,000 to 40,000 television commercials per year. $15-17 billion is spent by companies advertising to children in the US. Over $4 billion was spent in 2009 by the fast food industry alone. The marketing seems to be worth it. Children (under 12) and teens influence parental purchases totaling over $130-670 billion a year.  This session will be an overview of the financial values we would like to see our youth have and will demonstrate online resources for parents to use with children. The “Kids and Money” segment of the Savvy Parents will provide strategies and identify educational tools available to help you teach your children key financial values.
