Should you teach your child a life skill that creates financial security? Do you wish someone had taught you that skill?
Only 5% of Americans currently save enough to retire without worry. If investing a dollar a day spoils your kids then don’t do it. But ask yourself this one question, “Do my children have a chance to weave through the financial land mines and booby traps without some guidance?”
Investing a dollar a day won’t solve all your kids problems, but it will give them a foundation and a head start in a world that takes advantage of the ignorant.
