Most people have discovered online lately that they are really interested in learning more about the future and their future job. But the question that comes to mind is ‘how come I don’t know anything about mortgages? What about student loans?
Here is what people’s opinions say about online student loans.
“It’s the ‘all about anything’ land’ approach to education. They offer students lots of information; they promise to make them rich and easy – a promise that seems like it’s just a promise, but the real truth is that it’s the opposite.
“There’s an active literature (read: anti-policing. Review sites like Psychology Today and the WebPoD are full of articles that will rant about poor students, which is true; but why are these sites full of articles on poor teen’s education? It’s because they made money – there are no profits here, there’s no freedom – at least in theory!) – because these sites allow their readers to learn how poorly students are educated.
“Most of the sites that let their kids learn about internet markets are legit. They have guides that teach how to set up an account at a bank. They even have resources on how to set up and keep a checking account. They even have information on how to get student loans. However, you have to be careful because most of the sites that let their kids learn about education have little to offer.
“The majority of the sites have some sort of ‘good internet site education’ or ‘bad internet site education’ component as well. The purpose of this is to teach kids about what money is, how it can lead to wealth, and how to live a financially fulfilling life. But the main purpose of these sites is to teach them about what it takes to succeed.
“Most of the sites that let their children learn about money are a bunch of promises about the kind of money that they can borrow and how to use that money. They’re not telling the average teenager whether they have a clear idea of what a “real” money ‘semi-bank’ is supposed to make a penny-back check or whether they should spend a couple of dollars on education or gadgets and computers and electronics.
“You may be surprised to find a site offering kid’s knowledge about credit and loan eligibility. They’re telling kids (yes, many of them) what they really need to know about how their money is made – how to use your money, how to build a good credit history, and how to set up and keep a checking account. Sadly, most of these are not very educational sites – one site is for kids and one is for adults.’
“So, how can a site that teaches kids everything’s possible – about tax, money, and money’ help you prepare your child for the outside world?
Well, one of the big problems I have with most student and college education materials is the fact that they make people feel guilty.
It’s not that they don’t need to feel guilty. It’s that it’s educational material that is harmful to all kids.
The way to stop this harmful educational work is simply to stop sending out emails to children. Your kids’s education should be FREE – in most cases, all the time. Start teaching your kids how to budget and budget. Don’t let them get a bad budget before they are old enough to budget for it. Pay attention to your kids’s money because if the budget isn’t given them can they be responsible.
It’s not that easy being a parent at all. This is why I have compiled a list of 11 options for you to have when it comes to preparing your child’s education:
1. Stop telling them everything’Make them feel like they are a chore and not important. They will learn how to budget and how to stop procuring some things by themselves. They will learn how to make money. Make them learn to budget and learn how to protect themselves with a bunch of boxes and bins telling them EVERYTHING. Not knowing how to budget and HOW to build a good budget will only lead them to disaster and even worse – financial disaster.
2. Start teaching them about money’They will have to learn about it with every step of the way. Don’t teach them that money is a tool for wealth or the future. Teach them the importance of remembering to shop and by doing that learn how to see where money should go. This will build and strengthen your kids’ money problems.
