I have a problem with students not thinking the information we teach in personal finance is relevant for them at this particular time in their lives. They are busy trying to navigate high school and get into college and think this is all stuff they think they have mom and dad to take care of and worry about for the time being. Its very frustrating sometimes!

I found the job and budgeting resources to be very helpful in this area. Play around a bit with who gets what job. For example, I gave an outgoing student a job as a home health aide. He didn’t like it at ALL, and informed the class so loudly about his sub par lifestyle. He taught the other students more than I could have about how he could not make ends meet. I gave a scholarly, yet quiet student, a job as an economist, and she was VERY excited about her lifestyle. Another big impression. Note- most students figured out their own jobs.
