My first child was born last week, and I can't wait to starting teaching her personal finance!

Happy Holidays to everyone! Is anyone planning to give pre-paid cards as presents? I am curious if that is still popular.

It was my niece's birthday this weekend and I bought her a fake credit card. She loves it!

I think roughly 15-16 is the right age to get a child your first credit card.

What does everyone think the appropriate age is to get your first credit card?

I definitely think there could be more out there especially for millennials. FinanceGlobe should start one!

Great undertaking. In my researching one of the comments I keep seeing from the twenty year old age bracket is the lack of any training at home or in school on how to manage daily living finances.

I have started helping out with Junior Achievement, which I think is a great resource for young children to help them understand about personal finances!

I think so. Its also important to start early so they can get a good foundation on what is right and wrong and when you should/shouldn't use a credit card.

So which camp are you in? The one that teaches children responsible credit practices for the sake 'fitting in"? Or the one that teaches children that the cycle of debt is a financial redundancy?
I'm not sure I understand that one, but adults struggle to handle credit so I sure wouldn't expect a child to grasp all the rules and nuances of debt. Had my parents tried that with me, I know I would have worried to death.
