Financial education is becoming a necessary and even burning need nowadays. The terms financial
literacy and financial education are strongly bound together. Financial education is one of the
elements of economic education that in turn shapes economic awareness. Parents and guardians
are responsible for the financial education of the young generation, because it is in the family
where the first attitudes and habits connected with money are shaped. Understanding the need
for economic education of the young generation should lead to deliberate and systematic actions
taken up by parents and teachers in this area.
