Description

Its unfortunate that our schools don’t teach the basics of finance, saving and investment to our kids. As an adult, don't you wonder why our schools don't make it mandatory for children to take finance classes? In fact, isn’t that what all our adult problems are these days – thinking about managing our finances, our loans etc.? Just imagine as kids if we were knew this stuff, we would be on our way to a successful retirement a lot earlier than expected.

That’s why we're here today. Over the past 2 years, our course instructor has been teaching at Chicago’s public schools – the basics of stock market investing to 8th grade students as part of their Math class. This course is the online version of the same class.

At the end of it, you will all be prepared to invest in the stock market. So next time you give your kids some pocket money or they earn some, they will know exactly where to put it – in the stock market and watch that money grow. If they don’t have any money, not a problem, we'll show you exactly how to paper trade, so they'll be ready when you have some.

So parents, get your kids onboard, get them a notebook, get them ready to take some notes and lets get started. Its going to be a lot of fun.
