    The subject has been brought up before; the fact that finances and investment are not taught in schools. Do you teach your children about finances and the stock market?

    We teach kids aboutn things they will NEVER use in there adult life and ignore issues such as finances. For me, finances should be the first thing we should teach kids when they are old enough to understand. How many children leave school not even knowing the cost of a pint of milk, how pensions work, the tax system, etc. This is a scandal in my view.

    Honestly, If I have kids in the future I wouldn't teach them about the markets. But I would not have anything against them finding the market themselves.
