I used this program with Unicorn. She is 13 and just opened a Teen Checking account and had received a lot of money for her birthday and Christmas and even had some babysitting money. The first thing the program recommends is to have the student locate all their money and make a money jar.
Unicorn log into the website and make her initial deposit. Then she started working her way through the workbook. She learned how to write checks and deposit slips, use a checkbook register, to set goals, budget and even learned about simple and compound interest.
