Family Money Night Helps Families Navigate Financial Concepts With Their Kids
When it comes to families and talking about money, open discussions often feel taboo. But when kids and parents sit down together and explore what-ifs, preferences, and their curiosity around money, it sparks discussions of all kinds—some deep, some lighthearted, but all valuable.
A new pilot program from the UChicago Financial Education Initiative is facilitating these conversations for local area families. Funded by the University of Chicago Women’s Board, Family Money Night puts a time to talk about money on the family schedule—and brings parents, kids, and schools together in a uniquely research-based experience.
