What I learned teaching middle schoolers how to make a budget by Jamie Griffin


Jamie is a fellow personal finance blogger that I’ve worked with in the past (How to set up legal documents for new baby) and he continues to write knowledgeable and helpful content. This post is no different. Jamie is a middle school teacher and his school provides a regular ability for the teachers to pitch an elective class to teach the students. It can be almost any topic, as long as it’s educational and the students are willing and interested to try it out. This time around, Jamie offered to teach kids how to budget, and admittedly – he was worried no students would be interested.


Wow was he wrong! This post gives us a great overview of how much these 6-8th graders already know and understand about money and the truth may be shocking! If nothing else, it’ll help to make sure your ready early if you have any young minds around in your life.
