Since I do financial planning for a living, financial literacy is very important to me. I have two high energetic boys, Jonathan (age 4), and Jordan (age 1) and I want to raise my kids to be financially smart. I have given a lot of thought about how to teach the boys about money and asked for advice from friends who also have young children. I finally felt that I just needed to start something, see how it works, and adjust as needed. My financial literacy goals were simple:
Set the groundwork to learn the basics of money
Use money as a reward to incentivize good behavior
Most importantly, make it fun.
