This hilarious post is from Susan Beacham, a financial literacy expert, author, columnnist, and translator of “text speak.” She advises teaching kids about financial education and comes at it in an effective but usual way: text it to them! What a great idea for middle school kids and older!! If you want to sneak some “valuable life lessons” into this summer’s curriculum, try this! Your kid will think you are nutty but cool! And for those of us just learning to teen text-speak, she has a handy glossary at the bottom. TG (Thank God!).
