Help This Woman: Teaching Kids About Money
Because I am awesome and a professional.
BUT... It's a great topic. And it really matters to me, because my big kids are old enough to start getting it. And also one of their friends in 5th grade got a MacBook Air for Christmas and when I found out I spit my coffee across the room. Because I mean - COME ON.
So I want to know - how do you teach your kids about money? About being responsible with it? About the value of both money and the things they want?
I would love your suggestions and also - I would love to know your thoughts on what age to start introducing these concepts.
