Money Smart Kids Workshop: Help Your Kids Learn How To Be Financially Smart

Updated: May 26, 2014

What do kids learn about money in school?

In my case, I remember learning two things.

First, that it’s good to save money. And second, that money is the root of all evil.

If you think about it, these are conflicting lessons.

Why would I save money, if my teacher says it’s the reason why many people do bad things, right?

Personal finance may not yet be part of our educational system’s curriculum, but that doesn’t mean we should not teach our kids the proper mindset when it comes to money.

That’s why I’ve decided to do another run of…

  1. Reading your blogs about investing really teach me a lot. Then, I also read the article about BDO EIP which interests me so much because I have an investment under the eip of 1k each month which I started july last year – fixed income fund. My objective is long term say 10 to 20 years for my retirement fund. Now, my inquiry is do the fund suitable for my objective? I am now planning to open another fund under the eip with the same amount each month but in a balanced fund or equity fund for I intend to use the money for 4 to 5 years. Please share your thoughts about tbis. Thanks.

  2. I just have a question regarding The Money Smart Kids Workshop. Should there be one adult per child or is it okay for one parent to accompany two children?

    Hoping for your prompt reply. Thank you!
