There are some life lessons your kids just pick up themselves. Others, though, may best come from you — including how to handle personal finance in adulthood. The key is knowing what to teach them.

To learn more on how to give your young grad a leg up on spending and saving after commencement, join Ally Bank and featured guest for a live Twitter chat on Tuesday, June 18th, at 2 PM ET / 11AM PT. You’ll have an opportunity to share ideas and get tips on Teaching Grads About The “Real World.” Plus, RSVP below and you’ll have a chance to win one of two $100 Amazon gift cards!
