Why Common Cents?
When it comes to personal finance, common sense is not so common. In fact, Millennials’ personal debt has accumulated more quickly than any preceding generation. As parents, we need to recognize many of us are not equipped to teach healthy financial habits, because we do not practice them ourselves.
For many, credit cards have eliminated the idea of scarcity, so we swipe impulsively, spending far more than we earn or save. We borrow more for higher education and cars than our parents' generation. Unsurprisingly, excessive debt contributes to a host of ailments and stressors that prevent many of us from living pleasant, balanced lives.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Whether this stems from the lack of education from our own parents, or the shortcomings of a poor education system, it’s clear that the debt cycle needs to be broken. That begins with us! We can rectify the shortcomings in our own personal financial journeys, while educating our kids in the process. Common Cents is here to make this easy!
