How to Teach Small Children to Save and Invest
When it comes to teaching children about money, you should get them involved early ࣔ�ټ as young as 7 or 8 years of age. Have them help with the bill paying. Expose them to preparing your tax return. And, if you have the money, set up a brokerage account for them. Let them pick a stock or two.
