Yahoo! Finance Canada posted a great article Monday about kids and investing.  Journalist Gail Johnson asked for my thoughts on this topic.  Here are a few key ideas I shared with her (which were included in this piece):

•    First, teach kids to learn how to save.
•    Help kids learn to stop, think and reflect when considering what to do with their money.
•    Ask kids to think long term (10 years out) when setting goals.
•    Don’t underestimate kids’ savvy when it comes to money.
