    "This video gives students a great overview of the facts needed to understand the responsible use of credit cards. Narration and onscreen graphics define terms so that they can be easily understood. The narrator takes viewers through the process of applying for a credit card, how to understand the billing statements parts, and the problems of credit card abuse. Tips on how to avoid credit card fraud are included in two of the segments. Ethnically diverse teens are shown shopping, getting statements in the mail, and writing checks to pay the bills. Many images of teens worrying about, stressing over, and finally avoiding billing statements are included to bring home the point that having a credit card is not all fun and shopping. Being both mentally and financially ready for the responsibilities of credit is a theme running through the video. A good choice for school and public libraries for basic life skills, economics, and consumer education classes."
