Teaching children about money and how to manage it early on will prevent them from having to go through the debt vortex so many Americans find themselves sucked into. Schools are lacking in any real, useful knowledge about money management so the responsibility is on you to teach your children.
The earlier they learn the more comfortable and wise they become about personal money management for kids. Be proactive in teaching your children about money as well as your grandchildren.
5 Tips to Teach Children about Money to Ensure a Profitable Future
Most parents want their children to be more successful than they are. The best start parents can give their children to secure future financial success is to teach children about money early in life.
Parents have the benefit of spending and saving experience that they can pass on to their children, hopefully reducing the learning curve their children would have to go through.
While money does not buy happiness, it does buy options. Giving children options often opens up new and creative ways to think and act.
The first step to begin to teach children about money is to make them comfortable with money. Too often children hear negative associations with lack of money, such as; parents worrying about bills or wanting something but not knowing how to pay for it, etc. They need to know that money is fun and not all lack and stress.
