If your (real or ficticious) children's teacher asked you to come speak to the class, what grade would you be speaking to, and what money subject would you teach them (on their level)?

My boys are in 2nd and 1st grade. I would teach their class about the value of saving money and not spending it just because you have it available

Oh easy! I would speak to both my 16 yr old (junior) and 15 yr old (sophmores) classes about getting off your butts, getting a job and quit expecting your parents to purchase your cars for you..not to mention the insurance, and gas. Is that a money lesson or just frustration on my part? LOL

I prefer teaching kids over 13 or so usually, so I'd pick a high school class more than likely. I would want to tell them all about the horrors of college credit cards, and how no matter how much the pamplets in the bookstore make you think otherwise, you really don't need them.

I'd be speaking to 1st graders about earning money and saving money.
