THV Working for You: Teens and money

It's a talk parents need to have with their teens. It can shape their financial future.

Linda Tucker with Consumer Credit Counseling Service says children who receive information on money management at home are more financially literate than those who only get instruction at school.

Teens face a lot of pressure. Peer pressure, the pressure to look good, buy the latest item and they can also be under pressure from advertisers and marketing ideas.

Tucker says parents need to teach their teens about wants versus needs.

Also, she says if they get a job it will help them prepare for life, develop good work habits and teach them financial responsiblity because they can't have everything just by asking their parents.

THV's Liz Massey will have more on this on Today's THV at 6:30.

Police cracking down on drunk drivers

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- The Arkansas State Police Highway Safety Office will be on the lookout for drunk drivers as part of a summer holiday enforcement initiative to combat impaired driving beginning with the July 4th holiday period.

"Drunk Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest" is a nine day long statewide enforcement campaign set to begin July 1st.

The Arkansas mobilization effort includes city, county and state law enforcement agencies working together and devoting overtime patrols to combat drunk driving.

A 25 year comparison of NHTSA statistical data indicates, on average, nearly half of all deadly traffic crashes during each July 4th holiday period have involved alcohol as a contributing factor.

Today's Box Office: 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' is pure summer fun

I love Independence Day weekend, it's incorporates two of my favorite things: cookouts and a big budget blockbuster movie. Last year we got "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" and the dismal failure "The Last Airbender". This year we get to see fireworks in the theater with Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
