Teaching my kids – The Series

Summary of Teaching my Kids Series


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, 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.

    Hey Pollie,
    Love this series. My suggestions for future topics, in order to broaden the investment and general knowledge, could include:
    – index funds / ETF’s
    – Selection of insurances
    – What to consider for a mortgage
    – What is crowdfunding and how does it work
    – Life: follow your passion, not your head (i.e. if you have to work, do something you enjoy)
