Personal Development, Business, Finance, and Investing for Everyone
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
Why you should be teaching your kids about financial literacy?
Kids as young as five years old are already able to understand the basic idea of saving versus spending. Teaching kids basic financial literacy at a young age sets an early financial foundation and provides them the opportunity to learn, develop and strengthen their life skills to become financially capable adults.
Lifetime of Financial Independence
When children grow up healthy financial practices from an early age, they make good financial choices as adults. This helps them enjoy a lifetime of financial independence.
Any skill is easier to learn as a kid
Whether it is learning to ride a bike or money management, all life skills are way less intimidating when learned as a kid.
Distinguish between Needs and Wants from a young age
Learning to differentiate between needs and wants makes kids more aware of their choices from a very young age which helps them avoid unnecessary expenses as adults.
Never too early to learn about Saving and Investing
While concepts like saving and investing may seem too abstract or daunting to teach a kid, it is surprisingly easy for them to grasp these concepts from a very young age.
Benefit from the Power of Compounding
It is essential to teach kids how their money can exponentially grow, thanks to the power of compounding, so they can take advantage of this starting early in life.
Understand the Importance of Opportunity Cost
Kids need to be taught that every financial decision has an opportunity cost since money is a limited resource. This will help them make smart money choices.
Start Retirement Planning from the first paycheck
Financially savvy kids understand that the sooner they start planning for their retirement, the faster they can grow their nest egg and maximize their returns.
Financial literacy is not only important to adults but also for kids. Family is the primary unit for learning about finances. Parents' education strong predictor of a child's financial literacy. Teaching must begin early; learning begins early.
