Are You Teaching Your Child About Money?

We all know how important money is, right!  But how many of us will take the time to teach and expose our children to important financial concepts that will affect their lives.

Parents generally assume that children will learn many of these concepts in school. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.  So how can parents begin to teach these major concepts at home?

There are a number of interactive websites that have been developed that target different ages, skill levels, as well as address many topics concerning money. These sites help provide parents with the tools to help children understand basic financial concepts.

Here are a few sites I have found recently in the WSJ, that not only provide a quick start to financial learning for children of all ages but are fun to play.  Let me know what you think!
