Free Workshop for Families Presented by CHKD, Kohl’s

What Children Need to Know about Money

HAMPTON ROADS, Va.- A free workshop for parents and children ages 10 and up entitled “What Children Need to Know about Money” will be presented by Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters and Kohl’s Department Stores from 7-9 p.m., May 15, at the hospital’s Brickhouse Auditorium, 601 Children’s Lane, Norfolk.

The workshop will present valuable tools and techniques to help parents and children learn the real value of money.

“In today’s advertising-saturated, possession-crazed society, many young people have unrealistic expectations about money,” said CHKD parent educator Sandra “Sam” Fabian, workshop organizer. “They need their parents – still the most powerful influence in their lives – to provide essential financial guidance.”

Featured presenter is Nathan Dungan, president and founder of Share-Save-Spend, an organization that helps people of all ages develop and maintain healthy financial habits. He is author of “Prodigal Sons and Material Girls: How Not to Be Your Child’s ATM,” and he has become one of the national media’s go-to experts on family finances and the effects of mass marketing on young people. Dungan was formerly a top-performing financial advisor and vice president for marketing for a Fortune 500 financial services company.

The workshop ia free, but seating is limited and advance registration is requested. For more information or to register, call (757) 668-7500, or visit www.chkd.org/classes. The workshops are part of a series of lectures to help parents and professionals build stronger relationships with their children. The series is made possible by a $56,557 grant from Kohl’s through the Kohl’s Care for Kids campaign.
