Kids blow their money on the craziest things. It's true that most of them don't have to worry about mortgages, emergency medical expenses or electric bills. But along come the prom, ACT fees and maybe a 1989 Honda CR-X. Or maybe they asked if they could borrow money for tickets to the American Idol Live Tour. Eric McTye, a financial adviser with Edward Jones, leads the seminar You Can Raise Financially Aware Kids at the West Wyandotte Library (1737 North 82nd Street, in Kansas City, Kansas, 913-596-5800). "For many of us, the first real lessons came much too late. It's my goal to help as many parents and grandparents as possible to convey the message of responsible money management to their 3- to 18-year-olds," McTye says. By teaching about currency, earning, saving and investing, McTye says he wants to help people stay involved with their kids' development. Free to the public, the presentation goes from 6 to 7 p.m. in the library's auditorium.
