Consumer
Youth and money spending priorities on IHandFF RadioI
WASHINGTON (6/15/12)--Sunday's Home & Family Finance Radio  program covered strategies for starting the money conversation with your kids and for keeping excessive spending in check.

The show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, features Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:

  • "The Money Talk." Joseph C. Dellutri, certified financial planner, T. Rowe Price, Tampa, Fla., provides guidance for starting early conversations with your children about money.
  • "Reality TV Drives Fantasy Spending." Susan Tiffany, certified credit union financial counselor and director of consumer periodicals, Credit Union National Association (CUNA), Madison, Wis., offers advice for enjoying guilty-pleasure reality television without emulating the excessive spending habits depicted on some programs.
Home & Family Finance is a resource center for personal finance information at CUNA. The radio show is sponsored by CO-OP Network, the national credit union ATM network; Cabot Creamery Cooperative, maker of award-winning cheddar; and the Defense Credit Union Council and member credit unions, serving those who serve the country worldwide.

Home & Family Finance airs Sundays at 3 p.m. ET on the Radio America Network. The show also is carried on American Forces Radio Network. The one-hour program devoted to consumer finance issues is brought to you by America's credit unions and their 90 million members, and is presented by CO-OP Network.
