Teaching your (grand)kids about money

I’ve seen folks here ask for suggested resources to help their kids learn about managing their money and I’ve never had much to offer. But I ran across this https://thefinancialdiet.com and I’d think 20 & 30-something’s, especially women, might really relate to this site. TFD covers budgeting, saving, investing, LBYM, career, credit, debt, college $, lifestyle, etc. from the perspective of a 20-something.

Or if they prefer videos, TFD has dozens of good videos on anything financial you could imagine, for example https://youtu.be/_WdgIIRnIaE Lots of good info in easy 10-15 minute bites.

And there’s a blog, and at least one book.

Getting young people interested in the first place is probably the biggest challenge, but once that hurdle is handled I’d think TFD might be really helpful for younger folks.
