The research is clear. Teenagers in the U.S. consistently demonstrate difficulty with successfully negotiating their finances and planning for future economic goals. However, the current investigation revealed that youth acknowledge the critical role that their parents and other adults play in mitigating some of this difficulty. Our research also found that many commonly held negative beliefs about teens, finance and parental impact run counter to how teens actually feel.
Whether intended or not, parent’s and other adults are on the front lines in helping shape key finance-related attitudes and behaviors in their children.
