Money and Budgeting
January 30, 2012
Hosted by Nikki and the Paper Hope Street Team
Wonder how you will ever buy a car or manage to live on your own one day? Maybe you just want a new pair of jeans or book bag, but how do you afford to pay for these things you are thinking, "I am a teen. I have zero money." Budgeting is how you use your money to get what you want and need. We are not experts my any means, but we are going to have a real conversation today about money and budgeting. On the show we will hear from Tamra Wade, the founder and director of Paper Hope, on how she has used a very basic pen and paper method to get a budget plan in motion. Our street team shares stories about money and how it changes through the ages. Together, they will offer insight to help parents on ages for allowance and when teens should start work. We have a full house with our special guest Ashil Brooks back in studio the girls will share Daily Details and much more!
Paper Hope Street Team
Monday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Kids Channel
Paper Hope Street Team is made up of teens ranging in age from 13 to 19. They will be talking about issues that are impacting teens and their families. We will discuss topics that affect teens’ daily lives such as friendship, relationships, underage drinking, sex and drug use. No topic is off limits.
Paper Hope was started to provide a tool to help mothers and daughters open the lines of communication when facing these difficult subjects. Taking stories from founder Tamra Wade’s high school journals we want to take a glimpse into the raw world of a teen-aged girl to start the conversations.
Each week the Paper Hope Street Team will be discussing a blog topic from a teen’s unique perspective and offering parents and teen’s solutions to everyday issues. We hope you will be a part of the conversation! Tune in Mondays at 12 Noon Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Kids Channel. Produced by KidStar Radio Network.
