20 Things Kids Should Know About Finances

dollars and coinsWe ran across two great posts about what you can teach your kids about money. Remember, they watch you and many times your habits become their habits, and you want them to become super star money managers, right?

Our friends at Go Girl Finances wrote 10 Things You Should Teach Your Kids About Money, and 10 More Things You Should Teach Your Kids About Money.

Things like

  • Very Few Things in Life Are Free
  • Credit Cards Are Not Play Money

  • Money Cannot Buy Happiness (or Friends)
  • Advertising Is Not the Same as News
  • Uncle Sam Demands His Share

Head on over to the posts to read them in their entirety.
