In 2005, 18 percent of U.S. children lived in poverty. Five years later, an economic recession is making things still more difficult for families, with jobs, health insurance and affordable housing all in short supply.
Famed consumer advocate and reporter Clark Howard will join us with advice for saving more, spending less and avoiding getting ripped off. He’ll discuss ways for parents and caregivers to provide for their families’ immediate needs and build a framework for future financial security, even in today’s tough economic climate. Hear real-life solutions and learn how to make informed financial decisions.
