Teens and Finance

January 2010

A 17-year-old boy was arrested April 17 in Fort Walton Beach for stealing $200 from the cash register. This seems like a very minor offense, but these kinds of minor offenses add up to serious crimes. The boy told authorities he needed the money because he was having financial troubles.

There are many avenues your teen can take guidance concerning finances. In these economic times teens are just as uncertain as the rest of us. They are seeking guidance, and they will find it one way or another. Make sure you are your child's first source for how to deal with money trouble.
