Kids Money Books
As a parent one of the things on your "TO DO" list is to teach your children the value of money. This is something that should begin at a very early age. My son, age 14, and my daughter, age 11 each have portfolios that are being managed by a professional, financial advisor. I have found that my son, through regular communication with the advisor, is beginning to understand and appreciate the value of investing money rather than keeping it in the bank. In addition, he has now decided to put his paychecks, from a part-time job, into his account. He loves to see the account grow!! So start your children early and teach them the importance of saving and managing money. If you set the ground work from an early age it will be natural for them to continue throughout their life.
