Last year, I wrote an article titled, ‘ENOUGH! The Future of Children‘ for Michael Chindamo and my friends at Fautores Family Offices (financial advisors). They are wonderful people who care deeply about children, families, financial security, and the future! I encourage you to read it. It will provide you insight into some of the threats I see confronting children, hence parents, and their future. I share thoughts on why financial literacy is tricky, money habits, the systematic pollution of kids minds and more. The article also provides a list of recent research related to kids and money as well as information on why saving money is an essential habit for children to establish early.

The article contains my thoughts on the future of children. What are you thoughts on the future of children? Below are the thoughts and strategies of others. Enjoy!
