Summary of Teaching my Kids Series – June 2020

In august of 2015 I started this series about the wonderful world of investing. By writing these blog posts I try to educate my kids. And I hope my kids at the age of say 18, will have all the financial knowledge I’m having right now. This would be a huge advantage for them!

I think when you educate kids about money, they will benefit from it for the rest of their lives. Or as the saying goes: “What is learned in the cradle is carried to the tomb”. And to educate your kid is your responsibility as a parent. And I do not take this responsibility lightly!

In this series I write blog posts about all kinds of different investment and financial topics. The post you are reading now is the summary of this series. Every time a new addition to the series is posted, I will also update this post.

I hope you like reading these posts. Feel free to share this knowledge. Together we can keep the “snowball of knowledge” rolling.

    The lesson I wish I had learned earlier is that whatever your income is, you have to pay yourself first and invest that in assets so that money works for you. Especially when I was younger and my income was not very high, at the end of the month, it was all gone. If I had known that if I had just put 10% aside and invested it in stocks that money had been working for me for decades.

    I intend to learn this lesson to my kids from the first day they are going to make money.
