I enjoy reading and learning about many different issues, including personal finance. The article "Why You Should Tell Your Children How Much You Make" is incredibly thought-provoking, and I urge you to read - particularly if you have children. Financial education is practically non-existent in schools, yet it seems most parents don't make a conscious effort to educate their children about finances, including how far their salary goes. Some of the ideas set forth in the article sound like excellent suggestions to help kids understand money and prepare them for their own lives. The writer's forthcoming book also seems like a worthwhile read.
