Why isn't this something that schools reinforce across the board. From the time children learn to speak and learn what money is, they begin asking for money or asking for a new toy, video game, book, ice cream etc. As a parent, this is a perfect opportunity to introduce your children to money, credit, and savings. Nevertheless, again why wouldn't this be reinforced in all schools?
