Yesterday, I had the pleasure of talking with several elementary school children about money. On camera, I asked them to give some financial advice to grown-ups. Some of their great suggestions were don’t spend more than you earn, only eat out once a month, don't buy things you don’t need, and don't go over your cell phone minutes. My personal favorite piece of advice: “Don’t be a fool!”

I just think it is amazing how profound the kids' statements are and they flowed so freely with the advice! So cute to watch them talk while rocking away in the chair...just precious.

I love it! This was so fun to watch. They are so smart. How come adults can't keep things as simple and practical as kids! It’s so clear....don’t be fool with your money!

I hope you are able to help them keep their ideas strong as they get older. Don't be a fool is the statement of the decade. We all forgot that we are surrounded by fools, and so we started acting like fools ourselves. Great video!
