    Blast from the past.

    Old thread updates are the best - it's always neat to see how things went.

    It's odd how in the current generation, we marvel at a 6 YO playing an "adult game" like Monopoly that is (if we're honest) a very very long game. But back when I grew up, this was something all the kids did, and it wasn't considered an "adult" game.

    Thats absolutely great, start em' early!... My son is 6' 1" 190lbs and is 12 years old and is as strong as I am, and I am good shape. It's funny, I have tried to guide him to doing physically oriented skills or hobbies but he really enjoys computers and programming so I am going to help with that as he's got a keen mind also. So if your little one has a mind for money, that equals numbers and with a sharp mathmatical mind he can pretty much do what he wants in life with that kind base. Good luck with him!

    I forgot about that memory game, he did very well at that too a coupla years ago. He has been doing the computer thing for awhile too. He asks us why none of the other 6 y.os in the neighborhood can play monopoly like him, they dont wanna play that. They all do runa round doing the outdoor catching bugs thing too. He said the other day he wants to go to the Science Center becuase he has alot of questions to ask the people there. ANd he wants to add bookmarks to his Pokemon and other cards in his book so he can easily find them and mark his favorite pages. Now if he could just start making money, Id be able to retire early.

    Money Kids....

    This is great! Our children had their own buisness a few years back selling baked goods to local companies. It was a great project with values a'plenty. Each of them now own their own stokes, and yes they decided which ones to invest in.

    I suggest you allow your child to build upon what has already been learned. Go for broke and let him buy real life investments. I promise you can't go wrong even if the money is lost.... the lessons learned will only give him much needed experience with YOU and YOUR WIFE to guide.

    Oh, my children at the time they started selling were 8,6,4,and 2. It amazed me how supportive other adults were during this learnng adventure. To many children today are left to learn about the important aspects of life on thier own. I am glad to hear you are involved!!!!
