Wednesday, November 15th, 2017
The purpose of this study is to explore gender differences in the financial socialization of adolescent boys and girls. Children enrolled in a financial education summer camp were interviewed to discuss their knowledge, and the methods their parents use to teach them about money. In addition to the children, parents were recruited to participate in an interview about the socialization methods used in their homes, and the methods their parents used. Preliminary data suggests that gender may influence how a child is financially socialized.
