Congrats to our winners Melinda, Kelly Jenni, jeannine and amy!
As a parent raising kids is expensive ( and apparently the expense is expected to multiply tenfold as they near that college age… can you see the sweat profusely dripping from my brow as I try and calculate how I will attempt to put two kids through college without having to resort to hooking on the street corner?!) and so I am always on the prowl for ways to explain to my kids in terms they can comprehend the basics of finance, so that they can better understand and appreciate the money I spend on them and even the money they get as an allowance.
Which is precisely why I’m kind of gaga about the MetLife’s Life Advice ® guide, “Financial Planning for College” which offers helpful tips to navigate the process (www.metlife.com/lifeadvice). And to give parents a head start, MetLife has unveiled its Snoopy Snapshot Challenge, featuring the chance to win $10,000 to put toward a child’s education.
