Do you think it's important to teach kids about business and money from an early age? How would you do this?

There are many studies out there showing how children that were tough about finance and money handling from an early age grew up to be more successful. Now I don't say that all become little entrepreneurs, but that generally they navigate life better on a monetary level.

Yes, it certainly is important to let your kid starts at young age. You could start by introducing him to the books that could expand his views on financial situations. My uncle used to lend me these kinds of books when I was in middle school. Although I am not a super successful entrepreneur yet, I am fairly certain that those books I read did play a major role in setting my views on financial securities. If you have the means and resources, you could even help funding your kid to grasp the business concept better.

I would say it is better to teach them about saving money not really handling much of it. Teach them on how to spend money wisely not becoming impulse buyers whenever they see something cool they want it.

I think that children should learn the importance and value of money at a young age. They should know that they can't get everything they want, and if they want something, they should learn to work for it such as through chores, volunteering at the community or just small activities that will help them grow. I think that it will teach them to be more responsible as they grow up and it will also help them not become spoiled. Even if the parents have resources to get their kids whatever they want, I still think this practice is good and will help them to become better entrepreneurs if that's the path they plan to take.

Yes, I think it's good to teach kids about money, but I personally think it's best not to rush it or force it. Any small lessons we can teach them would be enough such as saving, in my opinion, as long as the lessons don't just stop there and they are continually taught more as they progress and are able to understand more and more. I think the best way to teach them is to get them involved and allow them to help out and just plain be immersed in such environments, and this way, they can just learn on their own and in their own way. Soon enough, they will start asking questions after this and I think it's best when it happens this way since you can be assured that they are genuinely interested and not just being pressured into acting like it.

Of course! I think that too many young people don't know the first thing about money. There are really great resources online. You can even check out Pinterest for more information. I have found some really great info and activities for teaching children of all ages about money. I even have Paypal and checking accounts for my teens so they get a head start at learning how money works.

I think that's a very nice thing to do for your kids and I applaud you for doing so. My parents never took the initiative to help me set up bank accounts so I was pretty much left on my own to discover such things and I never did get to discover them until later in life. I think kids nowadays are a bit more aware of the importance of money, though, to be honest. They are already exposed to so much of the business side of things these days because even video games now have integrated market places. It kind of makes me envious of them to be growing up in such an environment, to be honest. :\

There is a right age for every thing. The first think kids should focus on basic education first. If they will qualified, then they won't face any problem while dealing with financial situation, spending money and understanding market strategies.

I think it is very important to teach kids about the business but they should not be compelled or stressed to know or follow about it. So, teaching kids about an outline of a business will help them to understand what business is and how to deal with it.

I don't think that they should teach about business and money at their early age. Because every natural things has their own time to understanding. But they should know about this what is business and money. Nothing else.

Yes, but with simple things first like teaching them to buy and sell candies. Through that they will learn to market a product and realize that they can increase their money by means of buy and sell.

To my mind, any teaching must be in game form. If I want my son to understand the basics of Chemistry, I will buy him the chemistry set, I found the most interesting one already and tested it. The same is here. If you have enough interest from your child in the chosen business, he will happily follow you and work on it together.

In fact, it is terrible when parents do not monitor their children at all in rented apartments. I'm not talking about everyone, but most of them don't know how to behave at all. In a house where small children live, there is chaos and disorder. After cleaning, the cleanliness of the house will last for a few minutes if the child is actively playing. My parents have already accepted this. But there are situations when a child spoils the interior much larger and more serious. It is very difficult to keep track of the child, and he needs independence, so in any family at least once faced with damage to the interior. Do not despair and blame the child for his pranks, it is better to try to explain to him that you can not do this and together eliminate the defects so we were taught in the best daycare in Jacksonville (https://kidcityusa.com/locations/florida/jacksonville/san-jose/) and I can say that our child also likes to get knowledge about the correct behavior through the game.

It helps children understand the value of money at an early age and help them make better financial decisions.
