In this unique, easy to watch educational video, financial counselor Ron Blue speaks to a small studio audience about how to impart important money management skills to children. The video opens with a short animated cartoon and utilizes several colorful still cartoon illustrations, plus video graphics, to help illustrate the facts and principles that Ron—and wife, Judy—share.

Explains and endorses the use of an “envelope system” for each family member to budget his/her money. This is a parenting skill video that probably every mom and dad—especially those who parent young children up through jr. high school—would benefit from seeing.

Year of Release—1990
