The FPU teens class is changing spending behavior in some of those who attended.  Here are two stories:

This fall both the adults and teens met briefly together at the beginning, and one mother asked the rest of the group, “Is it really making a difference—are the teens really learning and able to apply the information?!”  Many of the teens also agreed it is helping them.  Another mother said, “Yes!  It already has made a difference.  My teen is spending less, planning more and saving.”

Real Life Story:  Steev and Olivia attended the FPU for teens class together nearly each Wednesday from September until December.  Both admitted, before the class, their spending habits weren’t all that great.  They said, “When we saw things, we would buy them, without giving it much thought.  Now we have budgets and are saving more!”  They went to a dance with each other and to save money, they made each other their own corsage and boutonniere and saved about $20!
