Money Matters and Kids – How Young Is Too Young?

It’s important to have a good sense of money in life. However, when do you introduce those concepts to your kids? When you get right down to it, money can be extremely confusing (just look at my checkbook register!). My husband and I decided that it really was never too early to start teaching our kids about money – both how it’s valued and the real, hidden value of money. That is – it’s easily spent, but not easily earned. So far it’s working out well. Our seventh grader has gotten all of this down, finally, lol. He’s even helping our second grader try and get a good grasp of monetary denominations and they are both really beginning to understand how important money management is.

Now…if I could just get off of long enough to really work on this myself…
