Here is a scenario for a parent named Christina, a mother of two lovely kids. Although she is still paying the remaining balance of the student loan that she borrowed 15 years ago, Christina and her husband, David, have already started to save for their kids’ college tuitions. Meanwhile, they also managed to save some for their retirement while paying the endless bills of mortgage, utilities, kids’ extra-curricular activities, etc. They want to pass their life skills and financial experiences to their children. Then their kids will have a solid foundation to face the ever changing, growing and complicated financial world. On the other hand, although they know the importance of financial literacy, they always feel that they don’t have a systematic and complete understanding of the topic themselves. Their schools and families didn’t teach them when they were growing up. Both Christina and David turned to the American Institute of Financial Intelligence for help.
