|Objective||To help teens develop a positive and confident attitude towards money.|
Thinking about how you view money and deciding how you would like to view money is an important part of your financial literacy. Answer the following questions for yourself and discover what your financial attitudes are.
1. Get some paper and a pencil and answer the following questions for yourself.
2. Take a look at other people's financial attitudes. Ask a few of your friends or family members the following questions.
3. Do a little research and try to answer the questions that you had about money.
4. Think about your attitude towards money. Do you like the way you feel about money? If not how could you change your attitude? Did someone say something about money that made a lot of sense to you?
5. Set one or two goals to help you feel more confident about money. Make you goals very short and achievable. For example:"I want to learn what a mortgage is?", would be a short term and achievable goal.
Note: Money is nothing to be afraid of! In fact the more you know about money and how it works the more empowered and confident you will be in your financial decisions.
Mark this activity as complete when you have examined your personal financial attitudes, interviewed at least one other person and you have achieved your goals.
