And a Charles Schwab poll found that fewer than a third of teens understand how credit card interest works and four in 10 can't budget.

Parents' money talks with high schoolers tend to start and end with "How much do you need?"

"The more you teach your kids before they go off on their own, the better prepared they are," says Daniel Hebert of Jump$tart, a coalition promoting financial literacy.

Could you live without the Internet?

Paul Miller gave it up for a year. What did he learn?


One year ago I left the internet. I thought it was making me unproductive. I thought it lacked meaning. I thought it was "corrupting my soul."

It's a been a year now since I "surfed the web" or "checked my email" or "liked" anything with a figurative rather than literal thumbs up. I've managed to stay disconnected, just like I planned. I'm internet free.
