Starting your family’s tradition of investing [under FAMILY TRADITIONS]

Childhood is the perfect time to learn about investing and responsible adults are the ideal teachers. The best way for parents to teach money management is by setting a good example.  Parents can reinforce their example by playing financial board games and video games as a family activity.  Assistance and supervision reinforce the development of good financial habits such as creating and using a budget.  Discussions and field trips are powerful methods for showing children how adults use bank and investment accounts.
