Comments on: Back-to-school is about backpacks, lunchboxes and money skills Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:27:18 +0000 hourly 1 By: bemoneyaware Thu, 01 Sep 2011 21:43:48 +0000 Dan Greenshields has rightly pointed out the need of the hour -TEACHING MONEY SKILLS to CHILDREN. The current financial situation is such that those who don’t learn about money skills will be the ones suffering most.

An uneducated individual armed with a credit card and access to a mortgage can be just as dangerous to themselves and their community as a person with no training who is given a car to drive.

We would not allow one to drive a car without getting a driving license yet we allow people to enter the financial complex world without any financial education.
