Parent2Child is a web-based application designed to help educate children in the skills needed to be financially responsible. Parents link their bank account to a special allowance account created for their child and then transfer a set monetary amount anytime or at a weekly interval. The child is then able to allocate these funds into categories which are displayed graphically, providing the child with an easy to understand visual indicator of how their allowance is distributed. The website also breaks down and shows children how each value was calculated, walking them through the steps so that they are able to balance their own finances with confidence. These tools might be simple, but by putting children in a financially sound mindset from an early age, they will be better prepared for the rigors of adulthood. Collectively, this would provide for a much more stable and vibrant economy; this would be beneficial both for the nation and the world.
