That’s right—we’re ushering in the end of summer with a month that’s jam-packed with helpful articles on how to get organized and financially prepare for the months to come.
And in the spirit of the back-to-school season, our August call to action centers on how we can pass positive financial habits onto the next generation. So for your first homework assignment of the month, we want to know: What’s the most important money lesson we should teach our kids—and how can we do it?
Maybe it’s mastering the art of saving by paying yourself first. Or it’s committing to achieve top financial goals as fast as possible—perhaps by picking up a fun (but profitable!) weekend gig, just like the people you’ll hear from next week.
Whatever it is, please share the lesson you think would make the greatest impact in the comments below—and you’ll be entered for a chance to win $100! And be sure to use your email address when you comment—it won’t be visible to other users—so we can notify you should you win.
Open only to legal residents of the 50 states and the District of Columbia who are at least 18 years old as of the date of entry. Premium users are not eligible. Contest running from August 1, 2014, through August 22, 2014. We will select the most compelling entry as the winner, and his or her story may be published on the site.
