Updated: Oct 15
Esteem has partnered with Greenlight, the money management training tool for kids, and we're excited to tell you about the positive impact it's having with families who are using it!
Research shows that children with ADHD and other challenges are more likely to experience financial troubles in adulthood.
Together, Greenlight and Esteem can help parents promote social and emotional growth in kids while teaching them the life long skill of managing money well!
Greenlight is an app driven by parents:
Why Greenlight is a great tool for children with ADHD:
"Learning to manage money is a fantastic way to practice skills like impulse control, decision making, self-management, and goal-directed behavior, while learning financial skills that can carry through into adulthood. Greenlight makes it safe and easy for parents to teach these important, life-long skills by inviting their kids to practice them early on."
- Dr. Tom Pedigo, Medical Psychologist and Child Development Expert.
Real-world lessons in financial responsibility.
Greenlight kids set their own goals, make tradeoff decisions and learn the power of saving. 89% of their parents said Greenlight has helped teach them financial responsibility.
