The Problem and 3 Big Challenges
Here is the problem and 3 big challenges related to getting kids financially literate when they are young.
Babies and young kids are learning machines.
They continuously absorb information through sight and sound without a filter. They pick up on verbal and non-verbal cues to begin forming their feelings, attitudes, habits and thinking about everything whether parents want them to or not. Everything, includes money.
All of us are imperfect, including parents.
One thing this means is frequently we are not intentional or conscious of our verbal and non-verbal communications. In other words, often, we are not even aware of what it is we are unintentionally teaching kids to feel and think, particularly about sensitive and nuanced topics like money.
Kids learn from a variety of sources, including advertisers.
Parents are primary and the most signifcant teachers and influencers in kids early lives. However, they are not the only teachers and influencers.
Family, friends and advertisers are as well.
Three important differences related to advertiser communications: (1) their communications are highly intentional and overwhelmingly if not entirely about spending money (2) their messages are consistent and (3) they may be the source of the most messages on one topic day-in and day-out, again - spend your money.
3 Questions Every Parent Should Ask
Three questions every parent should ask when it comes to get their children financially literate are:
What are kids learning and being taught about money? Is it what you want? Is it what will help them build a foundation that leads to a lifetime of sustained and growing success? Is it what reliably leads them to the "gimmes" at ages 3 and 4?
What do you want them to learn about money?
Who do you want teaching kids about money - your kids?
Who is shaping not only what goes into their heads, but their hearts, habits, feelings and attitudes? Underinformed parents, family members and friends. Who is doing it intentionally? Sometimes parents. Not schools. Definitely advertisers!

Have You Seen the Research?
The research indicates it is imperative that parents, teachers and community leaders take charge of children's financial education immediately, BEFORE others, including advertisers do.
Did you know:
A study by the University of Cambridge found that children's money habits are formed as early as age 7.
This means the earlier we start teaching kids about money, the more likely they are to develop "great" money habits that will benefit them throughout their lives.
According to a survey by the National Financial Educators Council, young adults who received financial education as children are more likely to save money, have a budget, and invest in the stock market than those who did not receive financial education.
The National Endowment for Financial Education reports that 76% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. By teaching children about budgeting, saving, and investing, we can help them avoid falling into this cycle of financial insecurity and set them on the path to long-term financial stability.

You want the best for your children.

Sammy Rabbit's Strategic Approach
Sammy uses stories, songs, activities, contests and unique programs like his Dream Big Journal to capture kids heads and hearts and teach them the basics of money.
The toe-tapping tune Get in the Habit teaches kids to make a habit of saving money with catchy lyrics like "...from every dollar, save a dime..."
The song Anyone Can Be Rich, encourages kids to grow their wealth by starting the saving and investing process sooner rather than later.
The story Sammy's Big Dream inspires children to think about their dreams and some of the habits and life-skills they will need to make their dreams and goals come true.
Habits and skills like earning money, setting goals, being willing to work for what they want, and not spending more than they make.
