Given the importance of financial decisions in navigating life, the language of money should be taught to children at an early age. Like learning a new language, it’s easier to learn and ingrain skills when children are young, and build on them as they grow, so that those habits positively impact financial stability in later years.
This financial knowledge put into practice impacts individuals, entrepreneurs and business owners, and the community at large. Business owners need to be educated in finances as a business is not run any different than a household. Having a Budget or a Saving and Spending Plan, tracking and measuring what you spend and how you allocate your resources are all aspects that apply both in business and personal lives.
Making finances engaging (fun!) and promoting a positive relationship with money at an early age sets the stage for an “Oscar winning” performance as adults. The sooner parents start taking advantage of every day teachable money moments, the better off the child will be.
