It’s never too early to teach children about money management. In a cashless society, technology plays a large role.
There are dozens of smartphone applications making it easier for kids, and parents, to balance chores and financial responsibilities.
“I think students should learn both what it’s like to operate with cash as well as — like most of us operate — with credit cards or debit cards,” said Jodi Bloemker, director of community investment with the United Way of St. Joseph. “You need to have an understanding of both.”
