As parents, we understand the importance of literacy. We sit for hours reading with our children. However, children must be “literate” about money matters, too.
Learning how to think about money and manage it wisely is an equally important life skill. We must patiently help our kids “sound out” the many ways to control money. Our kids will learn by doing. Some lessons will be thrilling. Others will be frustrating, even painful.
