I spend a great deal of time listening to financial podcasts about investing.
There is a common theme among many of the people on these podcasts who have been investing for years. Most, if not all of them, were exposed to investing at a young age – anywhere from ages 5 to 15.
I understand that your kid could probably care less about investing at 5. But at 15, he or she may have an interest. Even if not, you’ve planted the seed.
It’s funny. We expose our children to basketball, football, baseball, soccer and swimming. It’s fun, and creates great memories, but it won’t do squat for your child unless you happen to be raising the next Lebron James.
The game of compound interest can do amazing things over your child’s lifetime. Investing is the only way the average Joe can build real wealth. The wealthy already know it, and now you do too. Make sure your kids know as well!
My short beginners’ guide, The Stock Market is For Everyone, is an easy read that teens, and even some preteens, should be able to grasp. Order a copy for your child today here:
