This short video is one in a series about financial literacy prepared by ABC Life Literacy Canada, with funding from TD Bank Group and Government of Canada.
The narrator points to a recent survey showing that only one-third of youth reported that their parents talked with them regularly about financial matters. However, young people both want and need to discuss those issues with their parents.
The video features a teenage girl and her father talking about how they deal with money matters. It also offers several tips for improving financial skills, including writing down anticipated costs; reading up on financial matters; and discussing the difference between needs and wants.
The video includes a link to a website that offers information and activities to build financial literacy skills: http://www.smallchangeaddsup.ca.
