Further Reading: Kids

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 EarningsRaising Them Right and Tick Tock.

In addition, HumbleDollar has run pieces on helping kids financially, including Tending the Garden, Baby StepsNerd 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 MeBetter Than a BikeDreams 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 StepsNo Laughing MatterGenerating InterestGetting Carded, No UseOn 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.
