Money Confident Kids®

Good financial habits
start here.

Because we believe financial literacy
is one of the keys to financial stability―for  both individuals and communities―we’ve been educating investors for nearly 80 years.

In 2008, we saw a gap in the financial education of young kids and set out to improve their financial knowledge and behaviors. Since then, our financial education programs have reached more than a million kids, parents, and educators with tools, games, and resources informed by research.1 We extend that reach with community programs and partnerships―instilling invaluable life skills for generations to come.

PARENTS, KIDS & MONEY SURVEY

Survey says: You can learn a lot from parents and kids.

Since 2009, we have conducted our annual Parents, Kids & Money survey to improve our understanding of parents’ financial knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors. To gain a more complete picture, we expanded the survey to include kids ages 8-14 in 2012. Year after year, this research provides critical insight for developing our financial education programs.

3The sixth annual T. Rowe Price Parents, Kids & Money Survey, conducted by MarketTools, Inc., aimed to understand the basic financial knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors of both parents of kids ages 8-14 and their kids ages 8-14. The survey was fielded from January 29, 2014, through January 31, 2014, with a sample size of 1,000 parents and 924 kids ages 8-14. The margin of error is +/- 3.0 percentage points. Parents of multiple children were asked to consider only one child between the ages of 8-14 when responding to questions about their children. All statistical testing done among subgroups (e.g., boys versus girls) is conducted at the 95% confidence level. Reporting includes only findings that are statistically significant at this level.
