Conversations Beyond the Classroom
Throughout the HSFPP teens learn and practice personal finance skills. Continuing the conversation beyond the classroom increases the impact of the learning experience.
Your communication and involvement are more important than the state of your personal financial affairs. You can have a strong impact simply by starting a conversation:
- Share your own stories and lessons learned.
- Involve your teenager in household financial discussions.
- Answer your teen’s questions about money. (If you don’t know the answer, the HSFPP resource library is a good place for you and your teen to research together.)

Taking it Home Activities
Each HSFPP lesson has at least one suggested “Taking it Home” activity. These activities offer the opportunity for teens to talk with family members about how financial decisions are made and to share what they have learned about money management in class.
Parents can find the “Taking it Home” activities on each individual lesson page.
