I have already stressed the importance of good economic education for children in my previous post. But since schools remain uninterested, here is a fun way to teach your kids (and yourself) about money. Getting teens or even ourselves to read books can be a challenge. More often than not we will be caught dozing off, so here is a fun, interactive, and simple way to grab a few financial guidelines.
MONOPOLY! Yesterday I was playing this amazing board game with my friends and I was surprised to notice how many ideas from the book Rich-dad Poor-dad it reflected. Property building, debt, financial planning, etc being a few. We all learn better from practical and experimental methods. In fact a recent study has concluded, board games are the best way to retain information.
Have you played Monopoly, if yes, what are some lessons you took away from it? Or, do you know any board games which can be good teaching tools? Please tell me in the comment section.
