how to teach your kids about saving and investing

kids and young adults have something that most people don’t – time

you don’t need to be a math wiz to invest in the stock market – you just need to understand percentages , addition , subtraction , division and multiplication – basic maths

teach kids to save first – delay gratification

teach them about budgeting , the value of money and the power of compound interest

ideally the ages to start is from the age of 8 to 12

start with a known company and invest in what you understand

you could encourage them to invest in mutual funds and etfs ( Exchange Traded Funds ) since kids may not have time to do the research
