Follow-Up to my Kids and Money Post

By JLP | May 9, 2012

I noticed on Twitter yesterday that my Kids and Money post received a mention from a kids money author and expert along with a “This is kind of scary” (or something along those lines) comment.

I didn’t find the kids’ responses scary. I thought the results were age-based. The younger kids were farther off than the older kids.

Did you find the responses scary?

    I didn’t think it was “scary.”

    What I think is scary is what some adults think about money :) .

    I prefer the kids answer that “money grows on trees”. The only thing you need to know is that you do not own the tree.

    The only thing I found scary about this list is that 2/3 of your kids your apparently all want to be chemical engineers! lol!

    Is that a family career or what?

    My wife is a chemical engineer and makes good money. The job is in high demand so the boys are thinking about it, which makes me happy (as long as they want to do that).
