Experts agree that the financial lessons children learn today can last well into adulthood. That is why it is so important for children, teachers, and parents to have quality resources to help them teach and learn about good money management.

In effort to promote financial literacy among youth, MMI recently launched, a fun, interactive way for kids to learn about money management. Thankfully, we're not alone in our dedication to financial literacy. Following are links to some great kids and money blog posts from some talented bloggers.

i think personal finance should be taught at home. as i don't necessarily trust a teacher who might not have savvy skills to teach my children. kids need to have jobs early in life to understand what it takes to earn a dollar the hard way. when i was a kid in school they thought us how to write a check but I'm thinking that might be out dated now.
