baby-with-money.jpgHere’s a blog you parents might enjoy called “All There Is To It – Beyond Baby Making.” I recently became aware of this blog, hosted by Tracy Morris, when she ran a post on my tips for dealing with your children around the current economic downturn.

Tracy writes, “In case you didn’t get the memo: being a parent automatically puts YOU in charge of the future. Not just your future, certainly not entirely your child’s, but in a not-so-indirect way, the future of the society in which we all live. One of the most crucial things we can do is to teach our children to think and behave differently toward money. Let’s face it — many of us, and most of us in the Baby Boomer generation, have a done a terrible job of demonstrating the place of money in a life.”

    I agree more needs to be done on teaching money management to kids. Parents certainly have the major role, but I also think consumer education classes should be taught in the schools.
