Who Educates Your Kids on Credit?

The short answer is you.

The information used in credit reports impacts the majority of the major life decisions that your kids will make, but yet there is little access to credit education outside of the household. 

Our intent is to change that. 

As a parent, the better you understand credit, the better you can prepare your family for the struggles that face them in the future. In this series, you'll be equipped with podcasts, articles, and guides to help you better educate your family on how to build and maintain a healthy credit profile. 

Elements of Healthy Credit

In order to help educate your family on credit, we need to start with the basics. A credit score is a reflection of the content on a credit report. In order to build and maintain a strong credit profile, kids will need to understand the key elements of healthy credit. 



The whole point of a credit score is to identify your risk as a consumer. You can avoid serious credit challenges by simply establishing positive credit habits such as properly managing credit cards while having a healthy mix  of credit accounts. 



One in four consumers have inaccuracies on their credit reports. In addition, most consumers don't check their credit report regularly. In order to have healthy credit, monitor the accuracy of the data on your profile.



What do you do if you find an inaccuracy on credit? What are your rights as a consumer? If you've made a mistake or are dealing with a life event, how do you recover? Being vigilant about credit is key to protecting yourself.
