The Rich Teen

Odds are you’ve never thought of your teen as “rich”.   In fact, you are probably wondering, as I did, if my child even understands the “value of a dollar”.  Oh how I wish I had a nickel for each time my mom said that to me. 

Does any of this sound familiar?  If so, rest assured it is a conversation going on all over the country for parents of teens. 

Note: at the bottom of this article you will see 3 steps to helping your child move the needle in this huge learning category.   

But more to the point, let’s get to that word “rich”.  Whether rich is having a cool million in the bank, or having enough to keep yourself clothed and fed, it’s all wrapped up in the same mindset:  controlling your money. 

Financial Follies

If I could wave my magic wand and get what I want for you out of this article, it would be to not only educate and convince you of the importance to starting your...

Ask Your Teen This Question

First:  Full transparency here.  After you ask this question, you might not like the answer, but then again, you might love it.  After asking you will learn so much that you will be glad you asked.

Second: You can modify this question to cover an unlimited supply of topics.  You can re-purpose it at nearly any time you’d like.

Third: Few parents have probably ever asked this type of question before.  It’s rather simple in concept.

Fourth: Our teens (though this question can work at any age) are already “conditioned” to respond.

The question? 

“Honey, what grade would you give me on ___________?”

Our teens receive/earn grades every week day, and probably several times per day. They understand the concept of grades. They probably don’t like getting them, but it shows them where they are with respect their mastery of the topic involved.

Wouldn’t we parents like to know how we are doing on a...

Gifts Worth 3x their Cost

Well, it is here.  Lists. Gifts. Shipping. Traffic.  Returns.  Receipts.  That busy shopping season.  The evergreen dilemma of "what do I get them".  We all look for meaningful gifts for our "nearly-flown" kids.  They are almost "gone" and you have so much you still want to teach them.  But hold on.  

Here's a fun .  . . and dare we say it . . . slightly sneaky way to slip in a bit of knowledge AND give them something they will enjoy.  We certainly don't want to break the bank either. 

What about giving something worth 2x or 3x or priceless?   Amazing gift ideas are below that won't cost you that arm and a leg - but will deliver a powerful parent punch.  (Note: JellyGeneration is not affiliated nor compensated for any website, company, or product we list below. These are suggestions on where to start your gift process – not specific recommendations)

3 Ideas to make Winter Break Count starting NOW - for Your "Nearly Grown" child

JellyGeneration knows parents & students have more “need to know” than time. Join them on their journey as they break down financial and legal issues into practical and usable information.

Never Let a Good Crisis Go To Waste

Even a political phrase can be used in our daily lives. In fact, the upcoming holiday season offers high school and college-aged students just such an opportunity. We all crave control over our own financial destiny and the last two months of the year present not only a large need to get that control, but unparalleled possibilities in how to achieve it. Everyone faces how to avoid a cash crunch during the holidays. Time Inc., reminded us of why millennials see even more enticing advertising than other buying groups: The 4 Most Sought After Shoppers

The millennial generation gets a lot of attention from retailers. Americans in the mid-teens to late 20s represent the country’s largest demographic, so it’s understandable that...

Now What?

After working with countless high school students on potential career research, here is what I can report to we parents:

  • Our kids do have amazing career dreams
  • They have no idea what that potential career really requires
  • They are often shocked when they find out

 What happens then?

  • Are they heading in the wrong career direction?
  • Can they afford the career they are aiming for? (from the salary to the yrs of school ahead)?
  • Do they waste 2-4 years at the wrong college?

 What’s a parent to do?

1st:  Make a list.
As you probably know, our big parent move/wish is for every parent to make a “list” of things you want your “nearly flown” to experience and learn before they fly off.  It’s that gap between what they are learning in school vs. what we teach naturally at home that often trips we parents up.

Getting your child to research potential careers pays huge dividendswhen you place it on your “to-do” list for your...
