  1. I think it's a great thing to instill financial skills and knowledge at an early age. I wish I had that guidance so I wouldn't have created a lot of financial mistakes early on in adulthood!
  2. All of this is so important! Especially the saving for college part. My ex-husband & I locked in this great college savings plan for my son when he was first born, but we have been slacking with my youngest. She is 4, so we need to get on that!
  3. This is a great thing to start at an early age! I wish I'd been taught so many more financial things even just during high school. I wish I lived closer! I'd attend for sure.
