At School, Children are Rarely Taught About Finances

Do you value your child's education? Do you want your children to have a financial head start in life? Are you willing to take an active role to make that happen?

At school, your children learn many valuable concepts, yet they are rarely taught anything about finances.

Imagine if you had been taught about money and, more specifically, about what the rich know about money - that the way to wealth is through cash flowing assets. How would your life be different today if you'd learned these concepts at an early age?

You can give your children the financial head start you missed out on. The Rich Kid Smart Kid website provides games and resources that provide young people with an introduction to the financial concepts that place them on the right financial footing for a secure future.

Here's an excellent web site for children of all ages that teaches them how to handle money. Please check it out and try it for yourself.

    Personal Finance should be a fundemental training that all high schoolers get.
    Budgeting, Check book balanceing, proper use of credit cards, the necessity of a good credit rating, buy or rent realestate, investing and the power of growth, pensions, 401k, and how to spend wisely and avoid bankruptcy.

    I know these are life lessons, but, in this day and age, they need to be taught skills.
