New research shows kids want to talk more, learn more from parents about money management

New research shows kids want to talk more, learn more from parents about money management | Financial Education for Kids | Scoop.it

"It's concerning that parents appear reluctant to talk to their children about money and finances, perhaps it's because they believe their kids aren't interested in the subject or won't understand," said Sean Simpson, Associate Vice President at Ipsos Reid. "Since learning about essential life skills usually starts at home, parents should be open to having an ongoing dialogue with their children about money."

Talk to Khan or anyone behind the MOOCs (which largely sprang from university departments interested in computer intelligence) and they’ll all say their eventual goal isn’t to stream videos but to perfect education through the scientific use of data. Just imagine, they say, software that maps an individual’s knowledge and offers a lesson plan unique to him or her.

Financial literacy requires questioning mind

Financial illiteracy is often the first thing blamed when investors get ripped off or hoodwinked. Because we are not taught money basics at school and financial media and communications can be a bit "once over lightly", investors can find themselves being led down the wrong path.
