Children are too much exposed to different entertainment nowadays. Though it is not a bad idea to let them experience everything while they are still kids, the time when they should have learned things with value in life is being sacrificed, thus becoming the opportunity cost because they want to spend more hours with gadgets than books. On the investment side, kids should learn the art of investing as early as now. As an investor and a parent, you are responsible to start opening new doors for them. The next generation investing is in your children’s hand, so better use this chance to teach them something valuable they can use throughout their lifetime.

It’s saddening that there is no single subject in school to teach the kids, teen, and young professionals to invest. This is one major reason why you need to start educating your kids at home. If they can’t learn it at school, use your knowledge to show them how bright their future can be if they will learn to save and invest little by little. And I tell you, once you started teaching them how to invest, the sooner they will be encouraged to begin saving for their future. If you have regrets now investing as early as you can, remember not to pass these regrets to your kids.
The earlier you expose your children to investment information, the more time they will have to invest in financial knowledge. Always keep in mind that it’s not just a matter of money, it’s also a matter of how much time they have. If you think your sons and daughters are too young to open an investment account, introduce them to basic investment concepts. Buy them books to read and let them ask questions if they are curious. An investor and parent like you should also be willing to invest in the knowledge of your kids. Don’t just bequeath assets to your children, leave learnings and knowledge that they can use when they grow up.
The importance of time, money, and knowledge is very high at this point. If you can teach your kids to invest as early as now, they will have greater time to earn higher yields. Truth be told, I have interviewed kids who are as young as 12 years old but are already investing in stocks and saving for more investment portfolio. Most of them are learning strategies from their parents an even attending seminars with them. If you can nurture the potential of your kids, do it as early as now.
