My kids are little. My oldest is 12 and her sisters are 9 and 6.
Admittedly, I’ve spent no significant amount of time trying to teach them about money as of yet. If anything, I have taught them a little bit about the burden of taxes by eating half of the cupcakes and ice cream and metaphorically blaming the IRS. That one seems to get the point across!
When they get older, you can be sure that I will spend a significant amount of time with them teaching them about money. After all, it is my intent to leave them plenty of it after I die!
For those of you who are further along in the process, I thought this week’s discussion about children and money with an actual high school teacher might be of value.
Disclaimer: I have not reviewed this guy’s course and I don’t know if it’s worth it at all. However, there is no harm in listening to this perspective on a bonus podcast.
