Teaching my kids about money- The series

Teaching my kids about money

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 about money. 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.



The beginning

  1. Getting to know money and the value of money
  2. Learning to save and setting goals
  3. Compound interest
  4. The first € 100,000 is the toughest
  5. What is a stock?
  6. Dollar cost average
  7. Allowance and learning money
  8. Why dividend investing?
  9. First things first
  10. 3 important dates
  11. The Rule of 72
  12. Tracking your expenses and start budgeting
  13. Work and Money


Dear readers on what kind of topic should I write a post about?  I like to hear from you!

And will you help me to get the “snowball of knowledge” rolling?

    Nice approach. I liked jlcollinsnh for having a similar approach so much as well. Wish I would have been educated like this as a child.
    I do my best to keep the ball of financial education rolling by blogging myself on how to become financially independent via indexfund investing.
    Keep up the good work!

    Nice Pollies!

    One of the reasons I started my blog was to pass on my investing steps to my kids. I want to show them that you don’t need to have a 200 IQ and 12 years of University to do well in the market.
