Can your child's teacher, teach him/her about money?

The real issue may have less to do with kids’ ability to absorb money lessons than with educators’ ability to convey them. In a 2009 survey, Wendy Way and Karen Holden, Human Ecology experts at University of Wisconsin, found that “while teachers recognize the importance of teaching personal finance, few have had formal preparation for teaching this subject matter.” Indeed, just 37% of teachers have taken even a single personal finance course while in college. Nearly as many now teach one in high school. Wow. -Posted by Dan Kadlec

Teaching your kids about money early

Earlier is Better – Teaching children about the value of money has short-term and long-term applications to it. In the short term, children can start developing savings habits, learn how to shop smartly and begin to understand the general idea of investing. Long term advantages include helping your children avoid debt and planning for a healthy financial future. -Posted by Melissa Rubin

Kids and the economy.

At What Age Should I Teach My Kids About Money?

Many parents want to know at what age should they start teaching their child about money. My answer is at the very moment your child says these magic words, "I want."
Use this time to teach them a very valuable lesson about money. Tell them that Mommy and Daddy earn money by working and maybe they can do an EXTRA chore to earn the amount of money they need to purchase the item they want you to buy.

What is your kid saying about the economy?

What are you telling your kids about the economy? Many kids are writing the President asking him to help their parent(s) get a job, staying in their home, and/or help with the stock market. Do they understand what's going on in our economy? Well, the answer should be YES! Kids are feeling the pressure and the stress of what's going on in our world. Make sure you explain how the economy is affecting their life and the lives of others in your family and community.

Money DOES grow on TREES!!!

Here’s the picture….. Mommeeee, I want……. Pleeze Mommeee I MUST have…….. Daddeee pleeze tell Mommee to buy me a …………….. and, for peace of mind OR way out of a fix OR to ease a guilty conscience (about not spending enough time with the children...blah blah blah…..) parents, often in unison, would declare : Do you think MONEY grows on TREES??? Or “Show me the Money-Tree”...... and so, the indisputable fact was firmly fixed forever….. and yet it is totally not true ….

Paper (on which money is printed) does come from trees and without trees, no oxygen to breathe. And just as trees give life, they in turn, support a whole cycle of life

Clerical texts and reports for the Court were henceforth written on paper but still in a vertical direction. This centuries-old way of writing is probably a result of writing on strips of bamboo which were tied together.

Rag cloth money

That "feel of money" comes from at least three different things that make the paper in paper bills unique:

  • Normal paper that you use on a day-to-day basis (newspaper, notebook paper, paper in books) is made from cellulose found in trees. Paper used for money, on the other hand, is made from cotton and linen fibers. This kind of paper is known as rag paper. One big advantage of using rag paper is the fact that it does not disintegrate if you accidentally run paper money through a washing machine.
  • The paper used for money is thin compared to normal paper and squeezed with thousands of pounds of pressure during the printing process. This makes it even thinner and gives newly made bills a special crispness.

The other special thing about the rag paper used in real money is that there are tiny blue and red fibers mixed into the paper when it is made. These fibers are easy to find in real money, but they are so fine that they do not reproduce very well in the counterfeit money from your inkjet printer.

Here is real proof that money grows on trees
