Financial Literacy for Kids
Studies show most parents don't talk about money with their children and teachers don't spend a whole lot of class time on basic financial concepts or vocabulary.  With April being Financial Literacy Month, WXXI and its financial literacy series for kids, Biz Kid$, are proud to present a live, one-hour special focused on the importance of economic education among youth.

Great Show. Just what we need.

I just caught the show Biz Kid$ for the first time, and was extremely pleased with what I saw. As a 20 year-old collage student, and an aspiring investor and entrepreneur, I have realized the lack of financial education in the United States. This show pleases me very much. I thank all who are involved with this program, and believe that the education of our youth is the key to the mending of our broken economy.

Kids and Credit Cards

At what age should kids have credit cards? How can they be taught to use them responsibly? Should they have them at all?
