Don’t wait to long, Teach Your Children About Money Today!

As a parent we sometimes steer away from talking to our children about money! Doing this can sometimes lead our children into a path of making bad money decisions later. The best way to teach your children about money is to sit them down and explain the in’s and out of money.

Children need to understand its not about all the glamor of material things but the importance of making sure they are financially ready later. I believe children are never to young to understand the importance of money. You can start to teach them way before they enter pre-school. I would suggest teaching your children about money way before their first allowance.

Teaching them earlier will guarantee them to have a prosperous financial path. A path that will teach your children the differences between wants and needs. Setting money goals is a fundamental concept that will best benefit your children down the line for  retirement.

I want nothing but the best for my children. A life of no financial worries, good health and of course a choice of making the right decisions about money.Teaching them now about money will definitely help them as they become older and wise, to understand the value of money and how to save for retirement. After reading an article by Genworth, I know now that teaching kids about money  at a young age will ensure that their future and retirement fiances will be successful.

I’m always looking for tips to share with my family and friends when it comes to retirement. This article called “Tips For Planning Your Retirement” really puts everything into perspective, like setting realistic goals, saving as much as you can, whats best for long term growth (stocks or bonds) etc. My mom always use to say when we were young…planning now for retirement can prevent any long term disasters later.

    Great point! Don’t wait until it’s too late to talk to our children about money. Whenever they earn money or get it as gifts, we go over the 10-10-80 rule. 🙂
