What should be your child’s first lesson about Financial Literacy (money management)?

Question  What should be your child’s first lesson about Financial Literacy (money management)?

Answer  How to save money.

Complete Answer  A basic assumption of Financial Literacy (money management) is “Don’t buy stuff if you don’t have the money to pay for it”. Most children know that instinctively. Unfortunately some adults who find themselves in financial difficulty seemed to have forgotten that basic assumption of Financial Literacy.

A child’s first lesson in Financial Literacy is how to save money. It’s called “Pay Yourself First” (PYF Savings). Every time a child has money to spend, a birthday gift, money earned for raking a neighbor’s yard, et cetera, 10% should be saved. This should be automatic and nonnegotiable.

Although these concepts are beyond the understanding of a child, in the future the PYF Saving account could be used as a rainy-day fund, a child’s personal bank to borrow money from, and eventually a retirement account.
