Young adults need to improve their financial habits

The Charles Schwab 2010 Families and Money Survey revealed that parents of young adults (ages 23-28) “believe there are several areas of personal finance where their kids need to improve”.

The top three areas mentioned were

  • how to stick to a budget and live within their means (48%),
  • how to save money (42%), and
  • how to invest money wisely (33%).
