Welcome to Parent Corner

Educating children on saving, budgeting and making healthy financial choices for today and the future can be a tough job. Financial education is slowly making its way into our schools, and kids absorb ideas and facts like sponges, so they may already know more than you think. Get into a conversation, find out what they already know, and then teach them everything else.

Genisys is here to offer you information to help start the conversation and give kids real world examples and scenarios to think about and learn from.
