Mom Shares Impact on Her Children

Teaching kids about money must start at early ages if we want children to succeed and grow in financial security, stability, freedom and wellness.

Why? Because that is when money habits, thinking, attitudes, and feelings are formed and to a large degree set for life.

And, guess what? Teaching young kids about money can have a positive impact on the entire family! It is good for everyone.
