OVER THE YEARS, HumbleDollar has run a large number of articles devoted to kids and money. For instance, we published a series of five pieces by our bloggers devoted to what they learned about money when they were children: Growing Up (I), Growing Up (II), Growing Up (III), Growing Up (IV) and Growing Up (V). There were also three earlier pieces by Sam X Renick, two of which discussed what his father taught him: Keep Your Earnings, Raising Them Right and Tick Tock.
In addition, HumbleDollar has run pieces on helping kids financially, including Tending the Garden, Baby Steps, Nerd Gone Wild, Not So Fast and Upping the Ante. That help can extend beyond college costs to homes, weddings, retirement and inheritances, hence our articles Think Less of Me, Better Than a Bike, Dreams of Immortality and Off the Payroll.
In 2018, we ran a series of articles about Alan Cronk’s efforts to teach his son about money, including Baby Steps, No Laughing Matter, Generating Interest, Getting Carded, No Use, On His Own and Job One. We also published a popular blog post by John Lim on four financial laws he’s endeavoring to teach his kids, and one by Kyle McIntosh about getting his 11-year-old son started in the stock market.
What financial advice should you give to young adults? You might find some ideas in Then and Now, Getting Schooled, Ten Commandments, Wasted Youth and Before You Leave. Also check out the money guide’s chapter devoted to life events, where there are sections for newly minted graduates and those starting out as investors, as well as the chapter on financial basics.
